‘Then I Saw a New Heaven and a New Earth …’ The Apocalypse and Art in the Czech Lands

exhibition hall Masné krámy
04/10/2023 to 03/03/2024

Since the Middle Ages, the New Testament text of the Revelation of St. John and the visual imagination associated with it have included two antipodal points. On the one hand, the depiction of apocalyptic calamities and the dilapidation of the world represented destruction in a figurative sense, and thus social crises, upheavals and the horrors of war were associated with the apocalypse.

Full Steam Ahead! Boats and Navigation in Czech Art 1850–1950

exhibition hall "13"
27/10/2023 to 04/02/2024

Inland navigation in Bohemia is a rewarding and still not very well explored topic. In three thematic units, the exhibition presents often well-known paintings whose themes are identified for the first time in a credible way. The legendary steamship Primátor Dittrich, as captured by Josef Šíma, is also included.
