The research into art exhibitions in the Czech lands between 1820 and 1950 is a long-term project conducted by the Department of Art of the 19th –21st Centuries, Institute of Art History, CAS. Its most recent output – an online database ( – gathers information on exhibitions that took place in the Czech lands during the period under review, presenting the exhibition as a space for showcasing and discussing the works of art. The database’s primary focus is on exhibitions of contemporary Czech art, but it also contains exhibitions of old masters and important shows of works by international artists. The database is continuously updated, with both the IAH team and external collaborators adding information on an ongoing basis.

Building on existing research, the department is preparing a comprehensive edited publication on this topic.
