František Bílek built his studio villa in Prague in 1910 and 1911 according to his own plans and design. Bílek was mainly a sculptor and graphic artist, but his religious conception of art gradually steered him toward the need to create complex environments in which his works would be implemented in a multifaceted way, fulfilling his mission of spiritualizing human life. Villa Bílek has been in the possession of Prague City Gallery since 1963. The recently reopened permanent exhibition presents, in addition to the original interior furnishings, Bílek’s works from the pinnacle of his artistic development.
