The methodology is a continuation of the work of the team of authors titled Metodika tvorby interiérových instalací a reinstalací (Methodology for Interior Installation and Reinstallation Design), published by the National Heritage Institute in 2011 (ISBN 978-80-87104-86-6). Individual chapters deal in more detail with several phenomena that, in addition to their undeniable and sometimes essential aesthetic role, had a primarily practical purpose in historical interiors. Historic floors, heating elements or upholstery have their irreplaceable place in interiors and they objectively testify to important details of the contemporary lifestyle. With the language of the material they testify to the taste and practical needs of their owners and they are a tangible testimony not only to the technical skills but also to the level of aesthetic sensitivity of their creators. In individual chapters, the publication deals in detail with these phenomena and the impact of their quality on the integrity of the historic interior and its narrative value. One part also describes how to use modern 3D technologies to reconstruct the no longer existing phases of the historic interiors. As an example, the publication presents the reconstruction of two interiors from the Manětín and Veltrusy Castles. The publication mainly provides practical information and instructions on how to apply and implement the maximum respect for the authenticity of the monitored elements (floor covering, historic heaters, all upholstered elements) within the framework of the rehabilitation of historic interiors. The informations are given on the basis of practical examples of possible solutions and supplemented by a large number of illustrative illustrations.

He was active predominantly in Vienna and in South Bohemia, in service of Adam František, Prince of Schwarzenberg, as well as Karl VI of House Habsburg. He created hunting-themed paintings and portraits of horses to members of both the secular and the ecclesiastic aristocracy of the lands of the Austrian Empire, such as the Houses of Liechtenstein, Serényi, Althan and others. This dissertation is the very first attempt at a monographic analysis of the life and œuvre of this painter. In addition to new bibliographic data, it offers an in-depth insight into the relationship between the person who commissioned his work, Adam František, Prince of Schwarzenberg, and the painter Johann Georg de Hamilton on the basis of extant correspondence, and also attempts to present the painter's œuvre in a cultural-historical and artistic context. The dissertation mentions the first exhibition of a collection of Hamilton's work,...
