“Josef Čapek: Eight Linocuts, 100 Years” references one of the most significant series in Czech graphic art history, created in 1919. “The Eight Linocuts” album has never been presented in its full version before and is the first result of Čapek’s collaboration with Josef Florian’s publishing house in Stará Říše.
At that time, Čapek had already published other graphic works. The graphics now on view were supposed to accompany one publication by the editor, but Florian decided to collect them separately in an album. They consist mainly of figural motifs, often containing references to Cubist paintings. Today, this series is almost legendary and a significant part of Czech history, dating back to when Czechoslovakia was first established.
