Due to its critically bad condition, St. George's Convent was closed at the end of February 2012 and its collections of 19th century art were moved to the National Gallery's depository and should be exhibited in the future at Salmovský Palace.
Situated in St. George's Convent in the gorgeous complex of ancient structures that make up the Prague Castle complex is the National Gallery’s collection of 19th century art in Bohemia (from 1790 – 1910). The start of the exhibition showcases the social links between 18th century artists by comparing their works. The comparison takes place between Norbert Grund, František Xaver Procházka, Christian Seckel and Ludvík Kohl. The exhibition at St. George's Convent finishes with artists born in the 1850s and 60s including Jakub Schikaneder, Maxmilián Pirner, Beneš Knüpfer and Emanuel Krescenc Liška. St. George's Convent offers 350 paintings, decorative arts including furniture, clothing, glass and silver (lent to the National Gallery by the Museum of Decorative Arts) and other items on display from private and the Prague Castle collections.
