Drdáková, Kateřina ; Vymazalová, Marie (advisor) ; Oulíková, Petra (referee)
The diploma thesis deals with the iconography of selected works of St. Francis in the 17th and 18th centuries in Bohemia. The work is focused mainly on the paintings that were created and were associated with the development of begging orders during the Reformation of the Church. The first part is devoted to the life and legend of St. Francis, which is the basis for the subsequent processing of individual images. An integral part of the work is also the topic of the origin and development of the begging orders that caused the depiction of St. Francis. Specifically, Franciscans, Minorites and Capuchins. An important chapter is also the piety of the Czech lands in the Baroque period, which demonstrates the revival of the veneration of St. Francis during the 17th and 18th centuries in Bohemia. All the above-mentioned parts provide the basis for the following chapters on specific illustrations. The iconography of the individual scenes is first described in a general depiction, including the world's most important examples. A large part of the work is devoted to individual works associated with the Czech environment. The most represented depictions are Stigmatization of St. Francis, Ecstasy, The Porciunculus Miracle or his Death. Last but not least, the work will focus on the monastery lunette cycles...

Brandejsová, Kateřina ; Oulíková, Petra (advisor) ; Vymazalová, Marie (referee)
The bachelor's thesis "Hora Matky Boží" deals with the Marian pilgrimage site near the town of Králíky. In addition to the Holy Hut, which was not built, the Holy Steps and the Jerusalem Temple are symbolically commemorated here. The initiator of the pilgrimage area conceived in this way was Tobiáš Jan Becker, Bishop of Hradec Králové. The work will focus on the history and significance of individual objects in terms of historical, art-historical, but also symbolic. The Mountain of the Mother of God will be treated as a "sacrum locum", reminiscent of the Holy Land from which came objects of this work.
Depiction of Apollo on Baroque Ceiling Painting
Ungrová, Eva ; Oulíková, Petra (advisor) ; Vymazalová, Marie (referee)
The Depiction of Apollo on Baroque murals The theme of the diploma thesis is the depiction of Apollo in Baroque frescoes. The figure of the antique God of Sun appears in our country most often in Baroque residences in several different themes. Apollo with his sun chariot is closely connected with the solar theme - due to its location in space, it refers us to the daily cyclicality. Apollo with his sun chariot, same as Aurora symbolizes an allegory of the arrival of a new day. We most often find this theme in halls and staircases, but also in Sala terrena. Specific examples can be seen, for example, in Náměšť nad Oslavou, where Apollo announces a new day, or in Slavkov u Brna where we find several paintings connected with daily cyclicality, and in the Sale terrain in Děčín as an example of outdoor decoration. Some rulers also identified with the god Apollo, so his figure is also present in some frescoes celebrating his client. We meet such an example in the Clam-Gallas Palace in Prague or in the Hall of the Ancestors of the chateau in Vranov nad Dyjí. Apollo with the Muses presents a celebration of art. In our country, for example, at the chateau Nové Město nad Metují, but also in the Prague Klementinum in a baroque library hall, where Apollo is on a side fresco on Mount Parnassus. Apollo often...

The aim of this bachelor's thesis is to evaluate the noblewomen's Renaissance wedding attire in Czech fine arts. Based on the analysis of selected examples, i.e portrait paintings by Perchta of Rožmberk, Polyxena of Pernštejn and Anna Marie Šliková, the development of the fashion of wedding attire in the Czech environment will be described, which will then be compared with important foreign Renaissance wedding portraits of noble ladies. Attention will be paid to the stylistic evaluation of the paintings from the NPÚ collections, which are now part of the exhibition of Czech and Moravian castles, as well as the analysis of textiles, jewelry, hairstyles and other decorative parts of clothing decoration that present a certain iconographic significance. Wedding attire will be analyzed in the broader context of contemporary fashion, including everyday attire.
