Description

The historical heart of the town of Banská Štiavnica consists of period burgher houses. In three of them, decorated with beautiful ornamental facade decoration, houses the Jozef Kollár Gallery, which is named after an important native of Banská Štiavnica and a representative of Slovak visual modernism.

The gallery offers a tour of the unique permanent exhibition, which is complemented by seasonal exhibitions. The exhibition presents an extremely valuable collection of works of art created in Banská Štiavnica and other mining regions of Slovakia, as well as social and landscape issues in Banská Štiavnica, with an emphasis on the work of Edmund Gwerk and Jozef Kollár. The exhibition offers a cross-section of art from the 13th to the 20th century.

The most precious exhibits are two late Gothic wooden sculptures of St. Barbara and St. Catherine from around 1500. Sculptures belong to the jewels of Central European art.
