CZECH MODERN PAINTING 1907-1939

Curators: Ludvík Ševeček, Alena Potučková

 

SLOVAK MODERN PAINTING 1913-1945

Curator: Ivan Jančár

Manager: Jan Kukal

The exhibition shows a representative selection of modern Czech and Slovak painting from the period between 1907 and 1945 from the collections of Czech and Moravian galleries. The section dedicated to Czech painting from 1907 to 1939 presents 67 seminal works of modern Czech art representing the generation of the founders of modern art, the Expressionists, the Cubists from the period before the First World War, and the interwar avant-garde artists from around the year 1900, whose work developed from Constructivist-poetical and later imaginative work from the 1930s to Surrealism (E. Filla, J. Čapek, J. Šíma, J. Zrzavý, Toyen, and other artists). The Slovak part of the exhibition is represented by 30 outstanding works, most of them unknown in Slovakia, created by M. Benka, Ľ. Fulla, M. A. Bazovský, C. Majerník, E. Nevan, J. Želibský and other artists between 1913 and 1945.

 

The Czech-Slovak project also includes the exhibition of modern Slovak painting from leading Slovak galleries, held simultaneously at the Gallery of Visual Arts in Zlín and the Czech Museum of Visual Arts in Prague. Undoubtedly, it is one of the most remarkable exchange exhibitions in the last decade. This extraordinary project is the result of a systematic long-term preparation and mutual co-operation of renowned institutions in Slovakia and the Czech Republic.
