Stanislav Sucharda

Foundation & museum

Muzeum Stanislava Suchardy

The Stanislav Sucharda Museum is situated in a villa which was built together with an atelier in 1904-1906 after a design by the architect Jan Kotera. Sucharda had a significant share in creating the final appearence of the exterior and interiors of his residence, which incorporated several of his relief works. The main parts of Sucharda's villa are still preserved today in the state in whith they were designed by Kotera more than a century ago, including the interior details. It is thus the only villa designed by this major founding figure of modern Czech architecture to have been preserved virtually intact. The Museum consists of  many works by Stanislav Sucharda and other artists from among his contemporaries, most of them in their original locations.
