On the Iconography of the Cassone Panels from the National Gallery in Prague
Savická, Pavla ; Zlatohlávek, Martin (advisor) ; Konečný, Lubomír (referee)
At the time when the Middle ages were almost, but not quite, gone and depictions of pagan gods in "high" art were still scarce, relatively common objects were covered with ancient stories and classical myths. On Florentine marriage chests of the Quattrocento reappeared some scenes that were neglected and forgotten for centuries. These chests, so called cassoni, played an important role in the renewal of secular painting in the Renaissance. This research looks at two cassone panels from the National Gallery in Prague, The Judgment of Paris and The Rape of Helen. It is focused on their iconography and its sources. Special attention is paid to the female figure with wings on her head that appears in The Judgment of Paris. She is identified as Venus, who is often depicted with wings in Florentine art of the 15th century. Possible literary sources are also considered.

Issues of questionable attributions of works by Francesco Squarcione
Třešňáková, Alena ; Zlatohlávek, Martin (advisor) ; Konečný, Lubomír (referee)
of the Thesis Bc. Alena Třešňáková 2011 Abstract The thesis in the theme: Issues of questionable attributions of works by Francesco Squarcione The first part of the thesis provides a summary of information about Francesco Squarcione. He is known to have first been a tailor, then an artist (from 1429) and collector of antiquities, an innovative activity in his time, and finally, an entrepreneur who influenced young artists in Padua from the 1430s to 1460s. Squarcione founded (1431) the earliest known private art-school. He educated 137 pupils who had trained or learned through the copying of antiquities in Squarcione's collection. Only two works made by him have come down to us from his artistic era; the De Lazzara polyptych in the Museo Civico in Padova (1449−1452) and the Virgin and Child in Staatliche Museen in Berlin (around 1455). The second part of this work deals with the other works that have been attributed to him over the next centuries. There is a compiled catalog of these works of art. In each of the entry are summarized important opinions about authorship of the work and on the end of which I presented my own opinion. It is difficult to confidently attributed these works to the Master Francesco Squarcione, since on the commissions often collaborated his pupils, who created in his style...
