Depiction of Slovakia in Czech artistic milieu until 1918
Ernestová, Simona ; Rakušanová, Marie (advisor) ; Šámal, Petr (referee)
This bachelor thesis examines the image of Slovakia in the Czech artistic milieu from the mid-19th century to 1918, the year Czechoslovakia was established. It focuses on how Slovakia and Slovaks were depicted in the works of Czech artists such as Josef Mánes, F. B. Zvěřina, Mikoláš Aleš, Jaroslav Augusta, Emil Pacovský and Miloš Jiránek. It presents Slovak mountaineers, robbers and tinker craftsmen as symbolic of Slovaks. This image was created against the background of the building of Czech national identity, at a time when Hungarian Slovakia was part of Hungaria and the Czech lands were part of Austria. With the help of the Slavic, Detvian and Czechoslovak myths, which some Czech artists reflected and subsequently developed, the image of a weaker, friendly Slavic nation fighting against strong Hungarian oppression was created. Two non-art exhibitions that had their share in the perception of Slovakia by Czech artists - the Jubilee Exhibition and the Ethnographic Exhibition - are also set in the context of the Czech artistic milieu. The study also highlights the different interpretations at the time of the creation of the artworks, after the establishment of the Czechoslovak Republic and after the communist takeover in the 1950s.

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.
Otakar Kubín and Paris
Zimová, Charlotte ; Rakušanová, Marie (advisor) ; Pravdová, Anna (referee)
This bachelor's thesis thus collects data regarding the contacts of the Czech painter Otakar Kubín with Paris. This information is sometimes difficult to find and often contains a number of inconsistencies, which this work attempts to correct, organize and analyze. The issue of the work is to reveal the influence that Paris had on Kubín's work and also the possible retroactive effect that the artist could have had on the Parisian environment. Through the method of formal analysis of the works of art and placing them in the context of Parisian events of the time, the key role that Paris played in the context of Kubín's life and work is portrayed. Thanks to his work in Paris, Kubín earned recognition not only in his homeland, but also in France. At the same time, he became a link in the network of contacts between Prague and Paris, facilitating the flow of artistic exchange on the route Paris-Prague, but also Prague- Paris.

Czech Informel Graphic Art
Krtička, Jiří ; Rakušanová, Marie (advisor) ; Michálek, Ondřej (referee) ; Nešlehová, Mahulena (referee)
The Printmaking of Czech Art Informel Author: Jiří Krtička Abstract The thesis deals comprehensively with the printmaking of Czech Art Informel: explores its sources, principles and themes, evaluates contributions of individual artists and analyses the technique of "structural printmaking". The first artworks in Informel style in Czechoslovakia were created during World War II by Josef Istler who belongs to European protagonists of Art Informel movement. In post-war years Istler engaged mostly in painting and monotyping. For this reason it was Vladimír Boudník who became the leading personality of Czech Informel printmaking. In 1949 he declared in two manifestos of "explosionalism" his vision of a new art that he followed and carried out with admirable consistency till the end of his life. In the middle of 1950s Boudník started to elaborate "structural printmaking" - innovative printmaking methods that became a way to fulfil his vision. His work influenced strongly the whole generation of Czech artists and essentially helped to introduce Art Informel to Czechoslovakia against the ideologic resistance of the communist regime. Czech Informel achieved excellent qualities in Europe-wide comparison and "structural printmaking" became its original contribution to the world fine art. Keywords Art Informel,...
Origins and genesis of Marxist iconology
Johanidesová, Tereza ; Konečný, Lubomír (advisor) ; Kroupa, Jiří (referee) ; Rakušanová, Marie (referee)
The aim of this dissertation is to describe the basic assumptions, genesis and main characteristics of Marxist iconology, which emerged as a distinctive interpretative approach in the environment of Czech art history in the early 1960s.

The thesis follows four main thematic lines that can be considered crucial in terms of shaping the method of Marxist iconology into the form it took in the 1960s. The first perspective pursued is represented by iconographic and iconological tendencies. The history of the notions of iconography and iconology and its main world representatives are outlined, with an emphasis on the first half of the 20th century, followed by an examination of initially iconographic and later iconological tendencies in 20th century Czech art history. Emphasis is placed not only on the ways of conceptual interpretation but also on the tradition of understanding the concepts of iconography/iconology in Czech art history. The second line that the thesis follows in terms of the formation of Marxist iconology is the very...
