About

The construction of the sculptor Ladislav Šaloun's studio was completed in 1911 based on his own design. The building is an example of art nouveau architecture with strong elements of symbolism characteristic of Šaloun's later artistic work. The building includes a main studio with direct access from the outside, a smaller space with a gallery, a salon, and basement spaces used for occult sessions. In the 1930s, a residential annex was added to the original building. The building, situated on a hillside on the border of the Vinohrady and Vršovice districts, today belongs to the administration of the Academy of Fine Arts in Prague and houses the Visiting Teacher's Studio, which in the past was led by Zbigniew Libera, Magdalena Jetelová, and others.
