About

Galéria mesta Bratislavy má vo svojich zbierkach pozoruhodnú kolekciu diel, ktoré súvisia jednak so staršou budovou Mestského divadla v Prešporku z roku 1776 a jednak s novšou stavbou z roku 1886 (s vymedzenou časovou hranicou do roku 1920, teda do vzniku Slovenského národného divadla). Ide o súbor grafických listov, malieb, kresieb a sôch, ktoré vznikli v rozmedzí poslednej tretiny 18. a prvej polovice 20. storočia. Z pôvodného výberu asi 166 diel s touto tematikou sa kurátorka Martina Vyskupová sústredila na výber najdôležitejších a najzaujímavejších predmetov zo zbierok GMB. Výskum priniesol mnoho nových zistení, ktoré tu verejnosti prezentujeme prvýkrát.

 

 The Bratislava City Gallery houses a remarkable collection of works relating to both the 1776 Municipal theatre building in Prešporok and that of 1886 (until 1920, i.e. until the establishment of the Slovak National Theatre). It is a set of prints, paintings, drawings and statues executed in the period between the last third of the eighteenth and the first half of the twentieth century. The selection was conditioned by the contents of our collections as well as by the current possibilities of their presentation. The curator Martina Vyskupová focused on the best and most interesting artworks.  Her aim is to contribute, based on new information.
