Barabášová, Magda ; Vlnas, Vít (advisor) ; Mikulec, Jiří (referee)
The topic of this diploma thesis is the Commemorative Book of Prague Nydrlak, whose origins date back to the 17th century in the Prague New Town. The records in the book were written mainly by the merchants who travelled to Prague to trade. Most of those merchants were most likely involved in the international trade with marine fish that were imported from the North Sea and the Baltic Sea. Due to the representative role of commemorative books, the majority of the merchants received their illuminations from professional artists. The introductory chapters of the thesis describe contemporary practice of business of the given period, specifics of Nydrlak in the context of the practice, the commemorative book culture of the 16th and 17th century, but also the fortunes of Nydrlak before its depositing into the Prague City Archives. A pivotal part of the paper is dedicated to the merchants themselves who would left some information about their lives in the book. Based on this source and several other archival documents, the thesis assesses the confessional, societal, regional, and proprietary stratification of the community that was assembled around Prague Nydrlak.

The technical aspect of the artwork seems to be a mere tool of creation. The modern art has already questioned the significance of the technical aspect as the highest value by its conceptual tendencies. From the perspective of recognizing through the artwork, a new possibility of cognition arises - the anamnesis. Rather, it is finding the existing content of...
