A Brief History
Jan Langhans, photographer and businessman, purchased the building in 1880 and created Bohemia’s most reputable, prestigious photography studio. The studio, which was in operation from 1880 to 1948, took images of everyday Czech citizens as well as Bohemia’s most famous inhabitants, such as Tomáš Garrigue Masaryk and Antonín Dvořák, to name a few. The building, along with the studio, was returned to the Langhans family in 1991 (due to property restitution laws). After years of neglect the building was in need of a full makeover. An ambitious project ensued and turned out to be a huge success with Zuzana Meisnerova-Wismer, the great-granddaughter of Jan Langhans, opening the Langhans Gallery Prague in 2003 and architect Ladislav Labus receiving the prestigious Building of the Year Award.
