Welcome to Slovak National Gallery Welcome to Slovak National Gallery

The mission of the Slovak National Gallery, founded in 1948, is not only to collect and preserve art, but also to look for ways to provide access to it, to educate and inspire. Right now, an extensive reconsctruction of the SNG complex in Bratislava is in progress, however you can still enjoy temporary exhibitions and experimental expositions in Esterházy Palace – the SNG’s only gallery space at the moment. Once you are there, don’t forget to visit our Ex Libris bookshop or have a nice cup of coffee at Berlinka gallery café.

 

Current exhibitions

Exhibition will last 24 days

Arnold Peter Weisz-Kubínčan (1898 - 1944) was born into a Jewish family in the town of Usch, Prussia. From 1913 to 1917 he studied sculpture at the School of Arts and Crafts in Budapest. After the war he continued in his studies in Berlin, most probably at a private academy. In Berlin of the 1920s he could be close to the expressionistic tendencies which suited his artistic nature. Weisz-Kubínčan is a unique figure in terms of our modern painting and drawing but also due to his mysticism.
