Liptovská galéria Petra Michala Bohúňa

Liptovská galéria Petra Michala Bohúňa v Liptovskom Mikuláši
The gallery came into being in 1955 and is the third oldest one in Slovakia (after Bratislava – 1949 and Košice – 1954). It is placed in a historical and cultural centre of the city, in
a pleasant park environment.

The original building of the gallery dates back to the end of 18th century. Peter Michal Bohú, the artist of national revival and the classic of the Slovak fine arts of the 19th century, worked directly in its spaces through the years 1854 – 1865, like a teacher in a girl’s protestant school. The gallery obtained its present appearance after reconstruction and complementary building in the seventies of the 20th century.
The collection fund of the gallery represents approximately about 5,000 pieces of fine art – paintings, drawings, graphics, photographs, plastic works, from which a part is presented in four permanent exhibitions.

Slovak Fine Art of the 19th Century

The exhibition is a representative selection of the Slovak painting development in the 19th century. Mostly the portrait painting is represented as a reflection of the progress of the middle-class status, but also of making visible the domestic intelligence (Czauczik, Klemens). Emphasis is laid on the creation of P. M. Bohú (32 pieces of artwork).

The second half of the 19th century brings genre themes and landscape thematic (E. Ballo, Klimkovi, Skutecký, Katona, Medanský and others).. The collection comprises also the works from the beginning of the 20th century, which - by their essence and way of artistic expression - have roots in the previous century (J. T. Mousson., A. Ballo, Štetka, ordák, Kubínyi, Halász-Hradil, Kyselý, P. J. Kern, early works of G. Mallý, M. Benka and others).
