Prague's Nooks and Crannies in the Drawings of Rudolphian Masters
Olbert, Erich ; Nespěšná Hamsíková, Magdaléna (advisor) ; Muchka, Ivan (referee)
Around 1600, Pieter II. Stevens, Paulus van Vianen and Roelandt Savery created an extraordinary set of vedute during their stay in Prague. The Rudolphian vedute differ from earlier depictions of the same locality in that they contain mostly intimate city scenes. These works, as well as other Prague views by other Rudolphian artists, are the main subject of the bachelor thesis. I first discuss the artistic context that is a prerequisite for their proper understanding. Then I make an effort to assemble them in the most complete way to date and provide a topographical analysis of them. All this will ultimately enable me to evaluate the degree of uniqueness of the landscape art at the Rudolphian court, to differentiate the approach of each artist and to determine to what extent the Prague views are authentic. KEYWORDS drawing, veduta, topography, Rudolph II, Prague, Pieter II Stevens, Paulus van Vianen, Roelandt Savery
The Renaissance Transformation of the Castle at Horšovský Týn in the Time of Jan the Younger Popel of Lobkowicz after Year 1547
Havlicová, Jindřiška ; Nespěšná Hamsíková, Magdaléna (advisor) ; Royt, Jan (referee)
Renesanční proměna sídla v Horšovském Týně za Jana mladšího Popela z Lobkowicz po roce 1547 Resumé Původně biskupský gotický hrad, který vznikl v polovině 13.století, získal roku 1539 Jan mladší Popel z Lobkowicz. Za jeho života byl po roce 1547 gotický hrad přestavěn v renesanční zámek. Jan mladší Popel z Lobkowicz byl významnou osobností své doby a tato skutečnost se odrazila také ve výzdobě zámku v Horšovském Týně. V ineriérech architektury, navržené italským architektem Agostinem Gallim, nechal Jan vzniknout rozsáhlou malířskou výzdobu. Nejpozoruhodnější je zachycení zemského soudu prostřednictvím erbů jeho členů z roku 1558. Po smrti Jana mladšího Popela z Lobkowicz spravovala sídlo jeho třetí manželka Alžběta z Roggendorfu spolu s Janovým dědicem Kryštofem. V roce 1587 dosáhl plnoletosti Kryštofův bratr Vilém, který se získal Horšovský Týn. Přestože Jan mladší Popel z Lobkowicz byl katolíkem, Vilém se velmi brzy přiklonil k protestantismu, což se stalo osudným dalšímu vývoji zámku v Horšovském Týně. Po bitvě na Bílé hoře mu byl majetek zkonfiskován a roku 1623 prodán hraběti Maxmiliánu z Trauttmansdorffu.

Next to the fundamental chapter containing an compendious characteristic of the A. Dürer's personality and art will be the part of work an epitomize disquisition about Rudolph II.'s admiration to this Renaissance master and about his successful efforts about an acquirement of his arts into Caesarian collections. The labor will also include an epitomize disquisition about Dürer's inspirations by another artists of Rudolph II.'s sphere.
