Portmoneum – The Museum of Josef Váchal


You most certainly will not forget your trip to Litomyšl’s Portmoneum. The richly painted walls, where figures of devils, elves and spirits rotate incongruously at first sight with classical Christian motifs or hints of Hinduism and other Oriental teachings, has its logic which stems from Váchal’s attitudes to life and artistic opinions.

The history of the Museum of Josef Vachala already began in 1920, when the art lover Josef Portman invited his friend, artist and write Josef Vachala to Litomyšl and asked him to decorate the ceiling and walls of two rooms in his house. The author of the Bloody Novel, accepted Portman’s request and completed his work on decorating the interior in 1924.

Thanks to the unique and elaborate reconstructions, which took place at the beginning of the 1990s and rescued the paintings from looming destruction, you can visit the rooms of the Portmoneum – the Museum of Josef Váchal today.
