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.

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...

"The Grünes Gewölbe -between Art Repository and Baroque Museum. The Collection's History up to 1733."
Hlušičková, Pavla ; Zlatohlávek, Martin (advisor) ; Otavský, Karel (referee)
121 Anglická anotace The Green Vault is among Europe's most exquisite and most famous treasure chambers. It was established as a baroque museum by the Saxon elector and Polish king August the Strong (1670-1733) between 1723 and 1730. During that period, the Wettin dynasty's sumptuous collection of Renaissance and Baroque treasures was placed on view for the first time in eight presentation rooms of the Royal Palace. The inventories of 1733 have survived and form the basis for the present reinstallation of the treasure chamber. In those documents, this group of rooms is referred to as the "Secret Repository of the Green Vault of Dresden. The malachite-green hue of various architectural elements in the rooms of the secret repository probably led to their colloquial designation as the "Green Vault" from as early as 1572. Between 1723 and 1730 August the Strong realized his vision of a Baroque synthesis of the arts as an expression of wealth and absolutist power. In harmony with the festive architecture, 3,000 artworks were presented standing freely against a background of richly embellished and mirrored display walls and on ornamental tables. In this incomparable Baroque setting, the individual artwork receded behind the overflowing abundance of the whole. The rooms themselves have their origins in palace...
