As one of the oldest and largest private collections in the Czech Republic, the significance of the Lobkowicz Collections lies in its comprehensive nature, reflecting the cultural, social, political and economic life of the region over five centuries. With the passage of the restitution laws in the early 1990s, it became possible for the Lobkowicz family to reassemble most of their extensive collections, featuring world-famous paintings by Brueghel, Canaletto, Bellotto, Cranach, Rubens, Veronese and many others, as well as manuscripts by Beethoven and Mozart among its many treasures.This beautifully illustrated guide is published to complement two exhibitions opening during 2007 - one at the Lobkowicz Palace in Prague and the other at Nelahozeves Castle - that mark the reunification of the Lobkowicz Collections after more than 50 years. Featuring sections on paintings, rare books, music, decorative arts and hunting, and including a comprehensive study of the history of the Lobkowicz family, this is the first book to present the full scope of the collections to the public.
