Every object will be described and analyzed using secondary literature, material and literary sources. The result of this method will be a short synthesis including the outline buildings stages of objects and their style evaluation.

Kořenková, Nikola ; Kubík, Viktor (advisor) ; Royt, Jan (referee)
The goal of this work is a monographic treatment of the Kutná Hora Antiphonary (Prague, NK XXIII A 2) from 1470-1471 in the context of the Prague workshop of Valentine Noh of Jindřichův Hradec. Its creator belongs to the generation of illuminators who helped to integrate, transform and overcome the heritage of the beautiful style tradition. The newly emerging style system significantly influenced book painting of the second half of the 15th century and the early 16th century. The work is based mostly on a combination of formal and iconographic analysis. The outcome of this work should be a refinement of the information on decoration and a summary assessment of the significance of the Kutná Hora Antiphonary for the development of book painting in our territory in the 2nd half of the 15th century and the early 16th century.

The introduction of the thesis summarizes the already existing literature on the topic (Chap. 1). Then the following chapters are focused on the illuminator of the studied graduale (Chap. 2.1); they are also engaged in the questionable issues of provenance and dating the graduale, which is allegedly dated in 1506, however, the illumination contained in it rather refers to the graphic analogy (ies) of A. Dürer, which was (were) issued not earlier than in 1511 (Chap. 2.2). The thesis also includes a chapter which is dedicated to the donator of the manuscript (Chap. 3.1). Moreover, there are emphasized problems of literary fraternity and art of Utraquism in Bohemia as well (Chap. 3.3). The chapter 3.2 tries to summarize the works of the illuminator Paul of Melnik, and also to describe his artistic character. The last chapters are devoted to the decoration of the graduale and to possible analogies within the illuminations (Chap. 4).

Illuminations of gradual have conventional scheme choral manuscripts. A lot of analogies are found in the medieval manuscripts and also Renaissance manuscripts. There are elements of medieval literary paintwork, but also fully Renaissance elements: perfect linear perspective, high-quality scenery and brilliant anatomy.
