07/09/2018 to 04/11/2018

Although this exhibition attempts to capture the impact of major historical events on cultural and art life in Pilsen between 1914 and 1928, the axis of this probe is the establishment of Czechoslovakia on the 28th of October 1918. This event was an essential stimulus for regional art life. The democratic ethos of an independent republic appealed to the emancipation of regional culture that had been overlooked by the centralist, hierarchal cultural model of the monarchy.

From the Academy to Nature. Forms of Landscape Painting in Central Europe 1860–1890

exhibition hall Masné krámy
10/10/2018 to 27/01/2019

The aim of this exhibition is to introduce the main centres of landscape painting instruction that influenced the depiction of nature and natural motifs. In the second half of the 19th century, following the example of the Barbizon School, approaches to the depiction of nature were relaxed. The discipline of landscape painting was gradually reformed, and also re-introduced at art academies.
