Significance of the Forum '88. Possibilities of Art in Space
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...
The Battle of Abukir by Antoine-Jean Gros and her "second life".
Lembaková, Valerie ; Prahl, Roman (advisor) ; Šámal, Petr (referee)
Chromolithographic reproduction experienced a significant boom during the 19th century, both domestically and internationally. It gained considerable popularity, particularly in the realms of advertising and posters, thanks to its technique. Color lithography, specifically the four-color process, was frequently used, especially for reproducing oil paintings, representing a high technique of chromolithography. An example of this is a specific chromolithograph, printed on canvas, depicting "The Battle of Aboukir" by Antoine-Jean Gros from a private collection. The primary source for understanding successful contemporaries of Gros and the influence of their master, Jacques-Louis David, is Thomas Crown's publication "Emulation: Making Artists For Revolutionary France." A detailed report by Ann Friedman provides information on the origin and creation of the original artwork, based on which the reproduction was made. Discussions on various assumptions regarding the nature of the chromolithograph draw from consultations and perspectives of various art historians. Important sources include a restoration report and specialized articles focusing on color lithography in France, including specialized trade and reproductions of chromolithography. Based on these references, I will attempt to analyze the...

Bradáčová, Barbora ; Prahl, Roman (advisor) ; Rakušanová, Marie (referee)
This diploma thesis deals with the academic painter Karel Myslbek, who is known in the art world for his social work. The work not only maps the artist's distinctive work, which has so far only received marginal attention, but also gives it to the contemporary context. In individual chapters, Myslbek's paintings are compared with the works of domestic and foreign authors. The work also outlines the period's cultural and social background of the time, which had an indisputable influence on many artists. he detailed evaluation of Karel Myslbek's graphic work, which has so far been of little interest of the reluctant public, is also a big value of the work. The thesis concludes with a discussion of the phenomenon of suicide at the beginning of the 20th century, pointing out the stigmatization of this problem on canvases and the fate of painters.
Artists and Photography (Czech Painting and Photography in the 19th and Early 20th Centuries)
Pospíšilová, Romana ; Prahl, Roman (advisor) ; Vlčková, Lucie (referee) ; Mlčoch, Jan (referee)
Artists and Photography (Czech Painting and Photography in the 19th and Early 20th Centuries) - Dissertation abstract - Romana Pospíšilová The topic of this dissertation is the multi-layered relationship between painting and photography in Bohemia in the 19th and early 20th centuries, particularly the role of photography as an inspirational material for artists. The invention of photography in 1839 brought about many changes and stimuli in society at the time. Photography contributed to the development of a number of scientific fields, changed the form of illustrated magazines and news, and democratized access to one's own portrait. It also uncompromisingly spoke to the visual arts of the time. For painters, photographs, whether they were their own or were purchased elsewhere, represented a reservoir of visual stimuli. They facilitated the study of nature. They also brought about new impulses in the form of snapshots, chronophotographs and medical images. In the artist's studio, the photograph replaced the absent model, serving as an 'aide- mémoire'. However, it could also be projected directly onto a screen and mechanically copied. The use of technical images by painters did not fit into the 19th century concept of the artist as a creative genius, which was still very much alive. Art critics of the time,...

Hugo Ullik (1838-1881) - the landscape painter
Tichá, Denisa ; Prahl, Roman (advisor) ; Leubnerová, Šárka (referee)
Landscape painting experienced the greatest flourishing in our country during the 19th century, when it became an independent artistic discipline and was taught for the first time in specialized ateliers at the Prague Academy of Arts. It achieved great popularity especially under the influence of Maximilian Haushofer, whose landscape school was attended by many adepts of art, including Hugo Ullik. However, this particular author has been largely neglected and his monograph has not been written yet. In addition to literature, the primary source of information will be archival records, as well as research of institutional collections, castle and chateau picture galleries and, last but not least, auction catalogues. I will attempt to observe the main developmental stages of Ullik's work, including landscape paintings, illustrations and scenographic designs, along side the main personalities who most influenced his artistic expression. His exhibition activity and participation in various artistic organizations, will not be omitted. The aim of this thesis is to provide a detailed research on the life and work of Hugo Ullik, but also to evaluate his importance on the local art scene of the second half of the 19th century. Key words Hugo Ullik, 19th century painting, landscape painting, Haushofer's...

Many of the currently known information concerning Kupka has been confirmed while some new facts have also been uncovered.

They shared not only their artistic points of view but also the joys and sorrows of their family lives. They often included magazine articles dealing with art and the current situation in the Czech and French art world into their letters. Kupka often mention his work, mainly book illustration, and expressed his longing for painting. His correspondence reassures us of his punctual preparation for each art project and also sometimes helps withs its dating. The reader is also confronted with Kupka's successes and failures with his search for a new artistic expression, although this can only be found in slight indications, not in connection to concrete paintings. The most important outcome of studying their...
