In the second half of the 19th century, Munich became one of the main European artistic centres, internationally recognised and appreciated particularly due to the paintings of the Munich School. It was sought out by young artists from all over the world, strongly represented also by the Czech community. The Exhibition Munich – the Shining Metropolis of Art encompasses the period from 1870 to 1918, which is the timeframe from the famous era of the Munich School until the start of the avant-garde period.
