Lviv Art Gallery information
Lviv's main art repository has two wings – one in the lavish Pototsky Palace (Палац Потоцького), the other around the corner on vul Stefanyka. The former houses an impressive collection of European art from the 14th to 18th centuries, including works by Rubens, Bruegel, Goya and Caravaggio. The wing on vul Stefanyka contains 19th- and early-20th-century art (plus some 21st-century pieces); this includes a superb collection of Polish art, arguably the best outside Poland with some works by Jan Matejko.
