Gallery at the Castle Chateau Heralec

The scenographic, or so called gallery concept, that has been utilized in the castle interiors and individual rooms is absolutely unique and finds no match near or far. It was created in the artistic workshops Studio 3 in close collaboration with the Regional Gallery of Vysocina. Thanks to a very fresh mind of its current director, Mr. Ales Seifrt who believed in the idea or installing large-scale wallpapers in Heralec, everything fell into place. Original paintings from Czech painters, taken from the RGV depository, served as the basic elements in the wallpapers. We chose 18 paintings from over a 100 in the selection, which we then photographed in high resolution, transformed onto the wallpaper and installed in the rooms and public areas of the castle. During the installation process, we learned more than a few things about the skills needed to perform such a task. The result is truly mesmerizing. The paintings are as if alive, showcasing every brushstroke and piece of technique used in the creation of the pieces. The cracks in the painting, created by the hand of time, are so realistic you want to touch them with your fingers. All of a sudden, you discover elements to the painting that are almost invisible in the original, such as a peasant woman with a goat amongst the trees. A road through the park of Jan Honsa will take you directly to your bathroom, while in the room By the Sazava, you will immediately feel the atmosphere of life by the river in times long by. The entire concept was completed by the decision of the Regional Gallery of Vysocina to lend the original paintings to Chateau Heralec so we could hang them on our walls. Hence, all our guests have not only the opportunity to marvel at the beautiful wallpaper, but also at the originals and make a comparison between the two. All the pieces in the castle have literally 'spoken'. Come see for yourself!
