Prague - Besançon Rudolf II and the de Granvelle family Collection
Ježková, Markéta ; Konečný, Lubomír (advisor) ; Fučíková, Eliška (referee) ; Seifertová, Hana (referee)
Praha -Besançon Rudolf II. a sbírka rodiny de Granvelle Předložená práce se věnuje části sbírky rodiny de Granvelle, kterou mezi léty 1589-1601 postupně získal císař Rudolf II. Na pozadí historických událostí rodina de Granvelle během čtyř generací zažila strmý společenský vzestup i pád. Nicolas a jeho syn Antoine de Granvelle zastávali významné funkce na dvoře Karla V. a později Filipa II. Během této doby dokázali vybudovat jednu z největších a nejkvalitnějších sbírek 16. století, zároveň však byli svědky jejího rozprášení během nizozemské revoluce a postupného rozprodeje v prvních desetiletích 17. století. V současné době jsou známé pouze dvě hlavní cesty rozprodeje sbírky. Větší z částí se podařilo zachovat v Besançonu. Počtem, nikoli však významem, menší část se dostala do sbírek císaře Rudolfa II. v Praze a následně sdílela další osudy sbírek Pražského hradu. Předkládaná práce v první části podává kritický přehled dosavadní literatury věnované dané části sbírky požadované Rudolfem II. Pro českého čtenáře většinou není dostupná ani většina historicky orientovaných textů o členech rodiny, následuje proto stručný přehled jejího vzestupu, pádu a mecenariátu. Zároveň se představuje kontext, v jakém sbírka vznikala. Ústředním bodem práce je kapitola věnovaná příběhu Rudolfovy postupné akvizice....
Miscellanea Testudinis, The Study of Depiction and Symbolism of Tortoise in European Fine Art
Lovászová, Nella ; Konečný, Lubomír (advisor) ; Dobalová, Sylva (referee)
This master's thesis deals with a symbolism of tortoise in fine art. The text is limited to the European art only, to keep the range of the thesis sustainable. The thesis is devided into three parts. The first chapter focuses on literature, as a source of meanings for fine art. There are in detail described beginnings of literature about turtles and development of the dominant lines of their symbolism until 17th century. It is about "Tortoise-Lady", "Tortoise-Beast & Heretic" and "Slow Tortoise". Within the second part there are briefly mentioned the shades of turtle meanings that were not specified in the previous chapter due to the time period limitation. The third section includes a case study of the painting "Bathers with a Turtle" by Henry Matisse. It contains also occurrence of "Tortoise-Lady" within the history of art.
Karel Teige and the Liquidation of Aura
Vítů, Viktorie ; Rakušanová, Marie (advisor) ; Konečný, Lubomír (referee)
In my thesis I apply Walter Benjamin's thought as interpretative framework to Karel Teige's texts and I focus on notions of aura and autonomy. In the first chapter I initiate my exposition with reading Benjamin's notion of aura as spatiotemporal continuity of an artwork, its uniqueness if it is valued by society. I refuse that Benjamin rejects the autonomy of an artwork as opposite to its tendentiousness and political commitment. Benjamin's proclamation of the politicization of art from the conclusion of The Work of Art in the Age of its Technological Reproducibility is supposed to be read as the literarization of the conditions of living from his text Autor as Producer. In conclusion is admitted that this demand can be read as a rejection of autonomy of art as it is concieved in Peter Bürger's Theory of the Avant-Garde. In the second chapter I handle Teige's examination of phenomena which can be described by Benjamin's terminology as liquidation of aura. It is claim that Tegie as well as Benjamin rejects to award an original with a special status. Attention is payed to Teige's emphasis on democratization of artwork reception and to his practical artistic activity in nonauratistic media: to image poems and typography. In the third chapter is discussed what was Teige's attitude to autonomy of...
The Golden Ass of Apuleius and the Classical Literary Tradition in the Visual Arts of the Rudolphine Period
Savická, Pavla ; Konečný, Lubomír (advisor) ; Vácha, Štěpán (referee)
(in English): Only one of many Ancient Roman novels that were written during antiquity has survived to this day. Apuleius' Metamorphoses could have easily been lost too as it was overlooked by the Carolingian renaissance and at one point existed only in a single copy. Luckily it was found and rediscovered for the Italian Renaissance by one of the so called bookhunters in the 14th century. After that it did not cease to inspire many works of art from literature to paintings. The story of Cupid and Psyche that comes from this book was used to decorate many representational rooms from the early Renaissance on, until at least the 19th century. It seems to have been especially popular at the court of Rudolf II and it represents one of the typical mythological themes with a strong erotic potential. We can trace its roots to Italy where the novel was brought back to the literary scene. The most important visual sources, that played at least an equally important role in the dissemination of the motive through Europe as literature, also come from Italy. Especially Rome and Raphael's frescos in villa the Farnesina influenced generations of Italian as well as foreign artists. Bartholomeus Spranger, Joseph Heintz and other future court artists of Rudolf II were no exception. The antique city and antique novel...

Bukovinská, Beket ; Konečný, Lubomír
This publication, prepared by the Rudolpine Center represents both a sequel to the 2009 volume München–Prag um 1600, and at the same time the continuation of a project focused on charting the contacts among the imperial court of Rudolf II and other courts in Central Europe. The volume brings together the contributions delivered at the international conference organized by the Institute of Art History ASCR jointly with Staatliche Kunstsammlungen in Dresden. At the outset there were sketched the rich contacts between Prague and Dresden. The following papers brought new information concerning the visual arts, science and culture in both capitals.

Grave, Tombstone, Graveyard. The Range of Motifs of the Czech Painting of the 19th Century
Kučerová, Anežka ; Prahl, Roman (advisor) ; Konečný, Lubomír (referee)
(in English) This thesis called Grave, Tombstone, Graveyard. The Range of Motifs of the Czech Painting of the 19th Century is based on the analysis of paintings, drawings and graphics made by Czech authors throughout the 19th century. Artists worked with funeral motifs in different ways and these will be presented in different case studies. Some painters were fascinated by these subjects and they turned their attention to them systematically and repeatedly throughout their career. Other artists worked with funeral motifs rarely, although significantly. Artists integrated motifs of graves, monuments and cemeteries to their pieces of art for different purposes; this was connected with the interest of Romanticism in aesthetic anomalies and mystery, with their personal experience and feelings. Artists were also interested in genre scenes that were situated in cemeteries. Funeral motifs can be found in illustrated journals as well. Their aim was to document the specific place and as to symbolically express the finality of the life. The pieces of art will be presented in the context of the burial rites and literature of the 19th century. This phenomenon was also reflected by foreign artists, some of them will be also mentioned in the thesis as an analogy to the Czech works.
Portraits of friends in Italian Renaissance painting
Marsova, Liubov ; Konečný, Lubomír (advisor) ; Rakušanová, Marie (referee)
(in English): Represented dissertation dedicated to the issue of male portraits of friends in Italian renaissance painting. Despite of existence of some publications focused on the specific aspects of male portraiture, this area has not been yet given sufficient research interest. In the introductory clause is presented theoretical outline of the male friendship concept of male friendship in the culture of the Italian Renaissance and also some key aspects of the portrait genre. The work is divided into chapters by topic: for example, "Portrait and Antique", "Portrait and Remembrance", "Portrait and Poetry". Some particularly interesting moments were extracted into separate excursions as profile portraits of two men, the subject of a mirror in a portrait genre, the communication possibilities of images. Artworks analyzed in the present research are not classified into a classical model of chronological "development". The pictures are interconnected with theoretical thinking, which is also conditioned by the artwork itself. For each painting, existing researches have been gathered and comprehended. There are also new iconographic interpretations of some of the presented works. For research have been abundantly used literature of period, theoretical writings and poetry. The work tries to respond to...
Caspar Lehmann: an artist at the court of Rudolf II.
Minaříková, Adéla ; Bukovinská, Beket (advisor) ; Konečný, Lubomír (referee)
Caspar Lehmann is one of the most significant personalities of applied arts in central Europe at the end othe 16th and the beginning of 17th century. As an engraver of glass and precious stones he worked at the court of emperor Rudolf II. in Prague, but also at the court of the elector Christian II in Dresden. Considerable interest in his work was caused mainly by the claim of Joachim von Sandrart from 1675 stating that Caspar Lehmann was granted a privilege for glass engraving. Discovery of a signed beaker in late 19th century further sparked the existing interest in his production. Based on the similarities with the beaker, several other works were subsequently attributed to Lehmann, despite significant differences in quality and style of engraving. The present work summarizes Lehmanns life based on a thorough study of previous literature and archive materials. Main part of the work includes detailed analyses of 26 artifacts which were previously attributed to Lehmann. Based on their comparison it attempts to define a characteristic technique Lehmann used for carving, and subsequently to critically assess his authorship. The thorough comparisons of the existing objects suggest that three portrait pannels (Moritz von Oranien, Johann Sigismund von Brandenburg, and Johann Friedrich von Württemberg)...
The role of empathy in perception of humanistic photography
Ruzhyna, Kateryna ; Konečný, Lubomír (advisor) ; Rakušanová, Marie (referee)
This bachelor thesis focuses on the reception of empathy and understanding of the direction of humanistic photography, the mission of which after the Second World War was the reflection of destiny of the human race. The main problem, that I will reveal is how empathy for the motives and emotions affects human perception of photographic images that reveal human joys, sorrows and desires. This problem is exemplified by the historically famous exhibition "The Family of Man" curated by Edward Steichen. This paper presents research of empathy mechanisms from the points of aesthetics and psychology. The findings are then used to study the culmination point of humanistic photography, the exhibition "The Family of man", its visual composition and reflection.
