ART LANDSCAPES. The Swiss critic William Ritter (1867–1955) and Central Europe

výstavní síň „13“
16/10/2020 to 07/02/2021

William Ritter (1867–1955), a Swiss music and art critic, journalist, writer and a talented draughtsman too, was the first intellectual writing in French to take an interest in the culture of Central Europe as a whole. His writings presented Central Europe’s “art landscape” in words and images (including photographs), and they are a unique source of information on the epoch between the turn of the century and the first few years after World War II.

“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.
