The exhibition stages pivotal moments in the developments of Czech art, from the twentieth century and first decades of the twenty-first, through fourteen interludes. Each one is dedicated to one or more artists and particular artistic currents, beginning with the first featuring the realism of Antonín Slavíček, the best-known representative of the Mařák school of landscape painting.
Among the other sections, the second shows František Kupka’s abstract oeuvre, with one of his paintings, “The Big Bang”, made in the early 1920s, exhibited in Prague for the first time. The painting was also chosen as the exhibition’s logo.
The following interludes are dedicated, in turn, to the two key representatives of Czech cubism – Emil Filla and Bohumil Kubišta; the painter Jindřich Štyrský; the photographer Josef Sudek, the icon of twentieth-century Czech photography; Bohuslav Reynek’s previously unexhibited works; Karel Černý and Zdeněk Sklenář; and many more.
