Studia Rudolphina - new issue

Studia Rudolphina - new issue

We would like to inform you, the fifteenth issue of the bulletin Studia Rudolphina has been published. It contains a collection of articles on visual art and culture at the court of Rudolf II, but also goes further back into the 16th century in the opening text by Sylva Dobalová and Jaroslava Hausenblasová on the purchase and cultivation of exotic fruits at the Habsburg courts in Prague and Innsbruck. Markéta Ježková investigates one of the peripeteias of the well-known artistic collection of Cardinal Antoine Perrenot de Granvelle, a substantial part of which ended up as the property of the Emperor Rudolf II. Petr Uličný describes the activities of the Netherlandish artists Hans and Paul Vredeman de Vries, who were invited by the Emperor Rudolf II to work in Prague in 1597–1599, and an article by Ivo Purš deals with the symbolism of the title page of the treatise Basilica Chymica by the doctor Oswald Croll, which was the result of close collaboration between Croll and the Rudolfine painter Aegidius Sadeler II. The bulletin also contains texts devoted to Rudolfine alchemy (Vladimír Karpenko), a portrait of Hans Reinhard Steinbach von Steinbach (1570–1618) (Lubomír Sršeň), an unknown portrait of William V of Bavaria by Hans von Aachen (Antonio Dennunzio), and a number of other contributions.

Andres Groll (1812–1872): Unknown Photographer

An exhibition in House of Photography (Prague City Gallery) presents a Viennese photographer Andreas Groll as a pioneer of photography. His name is inextricably linked with the beginnings of photography in the Czech lands. The exhibition is a result of many years of research, which was generated by a rediscovery of Groll's photographs in the collection of the Institute of Art History of the Czech Academy of Sciences.

"In Honour of  Aleš Veselý. Without a Beginning, without an End"

"In Honour of Aleš Veselý. Without a Beginning, without an End"

We would like to invite you to the exhibition "In Honour of Aleš Veselý. Without a Beginning, without an End", held in Museum Kampa from 2 February till 28 February 2016. With its title, the exhibition symbolically connects a series of exhibitions that Aleš Veselý (1935–2015) prepared last autumn to celebrate his eightieth birthday. Shown was a selection of works from the early 1960‘s to the present day, which in brief presented works that belong to the artist's vast creation, which is substantial and approaches the thematic range and depth of his philosophically oriented art. Apart from some famous assemblages and objects the exhibition comprises drawings, designs to the sculptural projects, blind prints of the assemblages, as well as the monumental and expressive "drawings-paintings" from 1980s. A set of four objects Q. ein sof made of polished stainless steel (2012) has not been exhibited hitherto. It presents the problem of "mirrored surfaces", which was the topic of Veselý´s work from the beginning of 1990s and which found its form in his monumental sculptures; for the last time in the Law of Irreversibility (2015) at the Terezín Memorial, the site of the former Nazi concentration camp. The exhibition was prepared by Alena Bartková, the assistent of Aleš Veselý, and by Mahulena Nešlehová from the Institute of Art History, CAS.
