Andrej Bělocvětov / Belotsvetov (1923 Prague – 1997 Prague)
An exhibition by a phenomenal but introverted artist. It
presents the compelling story of a painter who was born in Prague with
Argentine citizenship, then lived here for more than twenty years with a
so-called Nansen refugee passport and who finally obtained Czechoslovakian
citizenship in 1962. The exhibition has been prepared for the 100th
anniversary of the artist's birth and includes over 200 paintings and drawings.
The exhibition is accompanied by a number of photographs by Josef Sudek,
Bělocvětov's longtime friend and patron, who photographed the painter in his
TETS OHNARI - CRANE
The mirror elements on the floor are identical to the parts that make up the famous Japanese origami crane and correspond in their shape to the limbs that result from the usual folding of a paper crane. The work of Tets Ohnari thus depicts the beauty of the folding process from which the crane is born.
Josef Seidel (1859-1935) - Krumlov at the Time of Egon Schiele
We decided to supplement the exhibitions by contemporary
authors, as well as a permanent documentary exhibition on the life and work of
Egon Schiele, with an exhibition of photographs called Krumlov in Schiele's
Day. In cooperation with the Museum Fotoatelier Seidel, we have prepared dozens
of photographs from the period of Schiele's lifetime (1890–1918). In addition
to a number of photographs by Josef Seidel (1859–1935), several photographs by
Josef Wolf (1864–1938) and Wenzel Mick (1872–1951) are also on display.
