The exhibition features seventeen paintings by artist Václav Boštík (1913–2005) displayed in an impressive installation designed by architect Josef Pleskot and painter Jan Merta. Part of the artworks references the artist’s personal experience, the Czech countryside, and the places where he grew up. Another section is dedicated to biblical scenes, depicted between 1935 and 1940, that, although still realistic, already show signs of the artist’s following transition to abstract forms in the 1960s. The exhibitions includes also a self-portrait and a set of four drawings made between 1943 and 1946, significant of Boštík’s path from realism to abstraction.
