Manggha Museum reopened on 12 May!

Born in Prague, the versatile artist Emil Orlik was a friend of Rainer Maria Rilke and Gustav Klimt. Working in Vienna and Prague at the turn of the 20th century, he created paintings, drawings, prints and posters, and designed stage sets and costumes, books and bookplates. Fascinated by Japanese woodcuts recently discovered in Europe, he travelled to the land of the Cherry Blossom twice to study the techniques of old masters. The exhibition at the Manggha Museum presents over a hundred of his orientalist prints, watercolours and drawings.
