For the Temple, Town and Country

Exhibition

Bishop Karl von Lichtenstein-Castelcorno was the most significant bishop of the Olomouc diocese in the baroque era. He had recovered and uplifted the entrusted properties after the horrors of the Thirty Years’ War, had built splendid residences in Olomouc, Kroměříž, Vyškov, and in other towns. He had constituted an extraordinary collection of art and founded the episcopal library. The exhibitions of the Olomouc Museum of Art that are opening at the Archbishop’s Chateau in Kroměříž and in the Archdiocesan Museum in Olomouc will present the results of four years of intensive research, and along with two meticulously prepared books their ambition is to pay a tribute to this distinguished and notable man.
