“MORE BEAUTIFUL THAN THE SUN”. The Pilsen Madonna and the Beautiful Style

výstavní síň Masné krámy
27/11/2020 to 28/03/2021

The Pilsen Madonna is Pilsen’s most precious artwork, and for centuries its most venerated one as well. Dating from the first half of the 1380s, this unique marlstone statue was commissioned from the cathedral workshop in Prague by the Teutonic Order, which was responsible for St Bartholomew’s Church in Pilsen; the statue was intended for the new church’s recently completed choir, where it has remained ever since.
