This dissertation is devoted to a monographic processing of the work of sculptress Maria Bartuszová (1936, Prague - 1996, Košice). Methodologically, it is mainly based on the compilation and evaluation of knowledge from the in-depth research of the first list of works of M. Bartuszová "Catalogue Raisonné 2012-2018", Collection of drawings and photographs from the Archive of M. Bartuszová, biography, exhibitions and bibliography. It is divided into four chapters, in which it deals with the sculpture of M. Bartuszová, its transformations in the period of her ceramics studies at the Academy of Fine Arts, Design and Architecture during the 1950s in Prague, continues by tracking her sculptural beginnings since 1961, and it deals with the circumstances of her relocation to Košice where she lived most of her life. It tracks her work during the normalization period of the 1970s until the end of the 1980s, when the totalitarian regime ended with the Velvet revolution. It explores the reasons why her work was little exhibited and also why it was little known and reflected by the professional circles. Based on the process of assembling parts of the organism of her oeuvre reconstructs technological experimental procedures, original terminology of the sculptor, creative intentions, dating of works and their...

Nováková, Eliška ; Klimešová, Marie (advisor) ; Prahl, Roman (referee)
The bachelor thesis deals with the unofficial exhibition Forum '88 with the subtitle Possibilities of Art in Space, which took place in the autumn of 1988 in hall 11 of former slaughterhouses and greengrocers in the area of the Prague Market. Thirty-four Czech and Slovak artists of the middle and older generations presented their installations, objects and environmental art, many of which were created specifically for this space and for this particular event. It summarizes the findings from the beginning of thinking about the exhibition, its organization, preparation, creation and course. Also of interest is the contemporary reflection, which was very lively on the art scene after its opening and provoked various discussions. A significant part is devoted to the generational tension of the time, which escalated in the second half of the 1980s and escalated into a generational conflict, which had been unnaturally suppressed in the previous decade. Following this, the formation of artistic generational groups is also interesting. These facts will explain the absence of the distinctive youngest generation of Tvrdohlaví (Hardheads) from the above- mentioned exhibition. The thesis highlights the significant role Forum '88 exhibition played on the art scene in the second half of the eighties of the 20th...
Beacon for Change: Art at the Festival of Britain 1951.
Scheinostová, Bohdana ; Klimešová, Marie (advisor) ; Švácha, Rostislav (referee)
This Bachelor Thesis is going to analyze the represantation of fine arts at a festival called Festival of Britain in 1951, which took place in different cities and towns all over The United Kingdom. After World War II The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland suffered extensive damages. Terror and devastation of war have projected themselves in the second half of the 40s into everyday life of British society, which thought it is never going to recover from this traumatic reality. Exactly for that reason an event was to be organized, which would have given the citizens of The United Kingdom back their confidence and which would boost the British spirit together with the idea, that the British society can get over the postwar era of decline and insecurity. Therefore the Festival of Britain should have represented everything, that the British people were able to do even after such a deep wound - from science inventions, new technological achievements, orchestral concerts, to contemporary painting, sculpture, architecture and applied arts. Festival of Britain became the so called Beacon for Change - a symbol signaling the beginning of a new era. This festival belongs to key events of postwar British history and at the same time it is one of the factors that contributed to the renewal of...

Štučková, Anna ; Rakušanová, Marie (advisor) ; Klimešová, Marie (referee)
The aim of this bachelor's thesis is to introduce and map out the Velvary collection of works by the modern artist Jiří (Georg) Kars, who was born in 1880 in Kralupy nad Vltavou to a rich Jewish businessman. As Georg Kars, he graduated from the Academy of Arts in Munich and later settled in Paris, where he created and exhibited art under the name Georges Kars; he became the primary representative of the School of Paris, as it is called. After Kars' untimely and tragic death in 1945, most of his art estate was given to his hometown Kralupy nad Vltavou. Today, the paintings and drawings from the estate are part of the collection at the Velvary City Museum; thanks to this, the most complete collection of paintings of this author can be found there. The Velvary Museum displays the paintings in a varied exhibit in the small gallery in the building on Pražská street in Velvary. Several paintings have been loaned long-term to the Kralupy nad Vltavou City Museum. This bachelor's thesis will try to show works from the Velvary collection in the context of the artist's life and also create a catalog of this artworks.
Reception of the work of Gustav Vigeland in the context of Czech art at the turn of the 19th and 20th century.
Havlíčková, Hana ; Rakušanová, Marie (advisor) ; Klimešová, Marie (referee)
The present Bachelor Thesis analyzes the Norwegian sculptor Gustav Vigeland and his impact on Czech Art during the end of the 19th century and early 20th century. I draw parallelisms with Czech sculptors and, furthermore, discuss various factors that influenced the reception of this artist in our lands. One of them was the role played by the magazine Moderní Revue, in which the Polish writer Stanisław Przybyszewsky published an essay, Neznámy, that introduced Vigeland in the Czech lands. I compare such article with another essay about Edvard Munch authored as well by Przybyszewsky shortly after the first one, and go on to consider whether the formulations of both works might explain somehow the different receptions of these two Norwegian artists. Przybyszewsky had a capital significance for the introduction of Vigeland in other European countries; in particular, I outline the similarities between the case of the Czech lands and that of Poland at the turn of the century, where the impact of Vigeland was incontrovertible. Keywords Gustav Vigeland, Oslo, Moderní revue, Stanisław Przybyszewski, Sztuka, Edvard Munch, Auguste Rodin, symbolism, decadence, 19th century.
Czech book designs of 1960s
Šafka, Václav ; Klimešová, Marie (advisor) ; Hubatová - Vacková, Lada (referee)
The aim of this diploma thesis is to describe Czech book designs of the1960s within the field of contemporary art discourse and praxis. Book designs, for Czech designers, typographers and artists - limited by communist régime - was very common artistic platform moving between the fine and applied arts. Thus focusing on the description of institutional structures producing books in the 1960s is crucial in this thesis, however, insight into creative praxis and contemporary artistic discussion is equally important, too.
Steelworking by selected Czech and British artists from 1990 to the present
Štěpánová, Adéla ; Klimešová, Marie (advisor) ; Štefková, Zuzana (referee)
The clean shiny surfaces that steel allows can be used to create art. These are not necessarily separate sculptures, but also experimental metallurgical fire painting on steel surfaces. Bachelor thesis introduces stainless steel objects of leading British sculptors, Anthony Caro, Tony Cragg or Anish Kapoor. Even in the Czech Republic, work with this alloy is not neglected. The work focuses on large sculptures of Aleš Veselý, steel combined with glass in the creation of Marian Karel and stainless steel sculptures of Michal Gabriel. The speech then turns to metal paintings by Ladislav Vlna, which he creates by heating steel plates. I am interested in the relationship between Czech and foreign artists working with this alloy. I ask if it is possible to create quality art from this metal, which is most often used in industrial production. Keywords steel, stainless steel, sculptures, metallurgical painting, Anthony Caro, Anish Kapoor, Tony Cragg, Michal Gabriel, Marian Karel, Aleš Veselý, Ladislav Vlna

Applied graphic work of the painter Jiří Balcar
Špinková, Tereza ; Klimešová, Marie (advisor) ; Lahoda, Vojtěch (referee)
The Bachelor thesis Applied graphic work of the painter Jiří Balcar aims to discover and summarize Balcar's applied work throughout his life. The thesis is divided into two main parts: the first deals with the layout of books and periodicals, the second one looks at the design of film posters. The chapter on designing the book outlines the problem of illustration. The main focus of this study was to find a connection between Balcar's paintings and applied art. The same way as in Balcar's graphics and paintings, he goes through applied arts from expressionist depiction of a man in the city over lettristic Decrees to abstraction. After 1965 he returns again to figuration and to a man, surrounded by artifacts, referring to the modern contemporary world. However, in addition to this broad similarity, making posters and some graphic design publications shows another dimension of his work that does not appear in the paintings and graphics. This thesis is primarily a monograph; the Czech environment and the global context had to be completely removed due to the limited scope of this work.
