Heritage evaluation of artistic stucco: The methodology deals with professional approaches to the conservation and restoration of artistic stucco, its value framework and theoretical problems of its restoration and presentation within the architectural context
Fiřt, Jan ; Kuneš, Petr ; Skalický, Petr
The methodology deals with professional approaches to the conservation and restoration of artistic stucco, its value framework and theoretical problems of its restoration and presentation within the architectural context. The introduction of the methodology presents the general characteristics of the stucco works care against the background of institutionalised monument care and describes the roles of involved persons in the process of preparing the concept of restoration intervention. In the following sections, the historical development of stucco in the European and Czech context is briefly outlined and a basic overview of the most common stucco techniques and materials is given. The next part of the methodology focuses on the survey procedures and methods used to characterise the work itself, its composition, techniques and materials, as well as to identify its damage, deterioration and secondary interventions, aimed at an overall assessment of the condition of the work. The core chapters of the methodology are devoted to the preparation of the restoration intervention, which is based on the monumental assessment of the specific work and the objectives of the intervention formulated in the given context. The preservation of the heritage values of the work is emphasised, but the legitimate perspectives of other stakeholders in the restoration process are also reflected. The final chapter of the methodology presents selected partial risks associated with older restoration inputs that are problematic from the point of view of today's monument care. The examples given, illustrated with photographs of real stucco works, deliberately depart from the context of complex and period-specific interventions and aim to present the risks associated with some of the existing approaches to restoring stucco monuments.

The Reception of Dutch Realism in the Late Gothic Panel Painting in Bohemia
Fiřt, Jan ; Royt, Jan (advisor) ; Konečný, Lubomír (referee) ; Nespěšná Hamsíková, Magdaléna (referee)
The dissertation deals with the reception of Dutch realism in the late Gothic panel painting in Bohemia. Its aim is to examine the principles of reception of new artistic forms and ideas that originated in the Dutch art centers in the 15th century. The Czech painting of the 15th century was adopting these innovative trends exclusively from the neighbouring countries. Therefore, the work addresses mainly issues related to artistic exchanges between Bohemia and the surrounding - mostly German-speaking - regions. It looks into the specific ways in which artistic exchange took place - the mobility of artists, art imports, the importance of graphic and other models. The dissertation focuses on the most important examples that show the reception of Dutch realism: The Ark of Grand Master Puchner, The Křivoklát Altarpiece, and works associated with it. These matters are addressed mainly through a formal stylistic analysis and formal comparison. In the case of the Puchner Ark, via these methods, it has been possible to point out a possible artistic basis of the author in Swabia - within a circle of the followers of the Master of the Sterzing Altarpiece. The dissertation has tried to prove the artistic origin of the Master of the Litoměřice Altarpiece within the circle of the Ulm painter B. Zeitblom. These...

The altarpiece of grand master Puchner and the influences of Flemish realism on late gothic panel painting in Bohemia
Fiřt, Jan ; Hlaváčková, Jana Hana (referee) ; Royt, Jan (advisor)
The thesis deals with the influences of Flemish realism on late Gothic panel painting in Bohemia; more specifically, it focuses mainly on the well-known altarpiece of Grand Master Puchner. The altarpiece is considered one of the earliest and also purest examples of the influence of Flemish realism in Bohemia. Experts agree there was no direct contact, the influence was mediated through neighboring areas. As to through which areas, experts differ in their opinions. However, the question of where the style of the altarpiece comes from gets the most attention in the thesis. Based on the comparison of styles the thesis claims that the main inspiration for the painter of the Prague altarpiece came from Cologne, from the workshop of the Master of the Lyversberg Passion in particular.
