Miloš Alexander Bazovský belongs to the most famous and outstandning personalities of the Slovak painting of 20th century. His work was thematically connected with Slovakia and by its expression it was orientated on wider European context. It contributed to the formation of modern Slovak art. His paintings are included in many collections of almost all galleries throughout Slovakia and in many private collections in Slovakia and abroad. M.A.Bazovský`s Gallery in Trenčín houses the largest collection of his paintings, drawings along with much of his correspondence and manuscripts. The stationary exhibition was opened in 1979.

The gallery, constituted 40 years ago, was named after M. A. Bazovský, one of the founders of modern Slovak painting who spent the last years of his dramatic life in this town. The gallery found its home in the architecturally attractive baroque Piarist monastery. In 2001 the gallery had to leave the monastery and moved to a fin–de–siecle palace – like building on 27 Palackého Street. Until recently a railway vocational school, it is situated in the town centre, too, and is one of Trenčín´s most beautiful buildings.

As many as 900 exhibitions have been organized in the gallery since its foundation 40 years ago. These have included not only individual and collective exhibitions of contemporary art,, but also displays of ancient art organized in cooperation with other cultural institutions. The gallery tries to keep up the tradition of the Biennial Exhibition of Czechoslovak Chamber Plastic Art which it organized for ten years until the break up of the Czechoslovak federation. Many interesting exhibitions of jewellery, toys and clothing products, workshops, quizzes, seminars, events for children and most recently also exhibitions of collections of private Slovak collectors often take place here as well.
