This diploma thesis deals with mural painting of the 13th and 14th centuries in the northwest Bohemia. The first part describes a brief history of medieval mural painting in the region. The most important part of the thesis consists of separate essays on places with surviving murals, i.e. mural cycles from Krupka, Brozany, Slavětín, Dobroměřice, Bedřichův Světec, Židovice, Radonice, Černochov, Volyně, Roudníky, Bečov nad Teplou and Potvorov. These chapters always have two parts: first existing literature on a particular location is critically evaluated and then a description and style and iconographic analysis are conducted. The thesis is specifically concerned with those who ordered the murals, including both famous aristocratic families and monastic communities. For this reason, even localities beyond the borders of the specified region are included, because they are connected with the topic by the donors.

Mural paintings in the urban environment in 16th and beginning of 17th century has been rather an ignored topic, however its artistic interpretation and iconographic concept says a lot about the life of residents during Renaissance.

At the same time, this division facilitated systematic research and listing of surviving paintings.

One of the aims of the work is to study the relationship between religion and artistic or iconographic interpretation of paintings. Selected artistic sources related in particular to the graphic works of that time play also important role.

Kopáčková, Kateřina ; Jarošová, Markéta (advisor) ; Nespěšná Hamsíková, Magdaléna (referee)
The aim of this bachelor thesis is to explain the political causes of the civil war, the so-called royal war in England between 1455 and 1487. The struggle for the throne and domination over the land between the Yorks and Lancasters took place throughout England with the support of many notable aristocratic families. The culmination of this war is the union of generations and the arrival of the new Tudor dynasty on the English throne. The main part deals with the symbol of the rose and its heraldic projection on the English courts. In the preserved book painting from Charles d 'Orleans from 1483 and 1492-1500 we can see the heraldic animals of the genera and the symbolism associated with them. We can see the gradual joining of the white York and red Lancaster roses, resulting in the arrival of the Tudor. The painting of the beginning of the Tudor family can be seen in a copy from Hugo de Lembourg of 1487, which depicts the royal wedding of Henry V. and Catherine of Valois. In 1515 Magister Sampson's coins are symbolic Tudorian shrub tree with hidden symbols that are explained in the work. Last but not least, attention is paid to displaying selected monarchs in the form of initials and book paintings.

My bachelor thesis will be devoted to formativ of space and landscape in the paintings of the Master of the Litoměřice Altar, an important landmark in the history of Czech painting. This is very clear not just in the figural komponent but also in his approach to space and landscape formation. All existing researchers have pointed it out. The landscape component of the image is closely related to its space construction, for this reason I will discuss this matter in the Master of the Litoměřice Altarpiece more complexly. The prerequisite is the study of the Master's available paintings, art-historical literature, and a summary of previous research in the first part. To put it in the context of the period, a brief excursion into landscape component in the Czech painting preceding the Master of the Litoměřice Altar will follow. The main content of my work will be an analysis of landscape and space in the variol works of the Master of the Litoměřice Altar from the point of view of his possible origins as well as his ways and means of space construction. As the thesis will deal with aspects primarily related to the formal side of the work, mainly formal and comparative approaches will be applied. Also the technical and technological aspects will be taken into account.
