Fundraising Goal

All of the works in the exhibition will be sold at auction to support the Lobkowicz Collections’ largest capital project to date: the reconstruction and renovation of Antonín Dvorak’s Birth House, which will be transformed into a new museum and international music destination with dedicated music education courses, workshops, concerts, and community enrichment programs.   

House of Lobkowicz

House of Lobkowicz is a cultural organization that manages events, heritage sites, and the Lobkowicz Collections—one of Europe’s oldest and finest private collections, comprised of items dating back over 2,000 years. Highlights include paintings by Bruegel, Canaletto, and Velázquez, and hand-annotated manuscripts by Mozart and Beethoven. 
 
The Collections were amassed by the Lobkowicz family, one of the most prominent Bohemian noble families whose successive generations over 700 years have played an influential role in European politics and society. The family’s collections and properties were confiscated twice under the Nazi and Communist regimes of the 20th century, forcing the Lobkowiczes to flee their homeland. In the early 1990s, the family returned and began the restitution process. They have since been reassembling and restoring the Collections and properties, permanently opening them to the public, for the first time in history. 

The four heritage sites overseen by the organization include the Lobkowicz Palace in Prague Castle, Nelahozeves Castle, Roudnice Castle, and Střekov Castle. These historic locations offer exhibitions, cultural activities, educational programs, and venue rentals. Cultural stewardship is at the heart of House of Lobkowicz, which is dedicated to sharing the past and creating the future
