Reception of the work of Gustav Vigeland in the context of Czech art at the turn of the 19th and 20th century.
Havlíčková, Hana ; Rakušanová, Marie (advisor) ; Klimešová, Marie (referee)
The present Bachelor Thesis analyzes the Norwegian sculptor Gustav Vigeland and his impact on Czech Art during the end of the 19th century and early 20th century. I draw parallelisms with Czech sculptors and, furthermore, discuss various factors that influenced the reception of this artist in our lands. One of them was the role played by the magazine Moderní Revue, in which the Polish writer Stanisław Przybyszewsky published an essay, Neznámy, that introduced Vigeland in the Czech lands. I compare such article with another essay about Edvard Munch authored as well by Przybyszewsky shortly after the first one, and go on to consider whether the formulations of both works might explain somehow the different receptions of these two Norwegian artists. Przybyszewsky had a capital significance for the introduction of Vigeland in other European countries; in particular, I outline the similarities between the case of the Czech lands and that of Poland at the turn of the century, where the impact of Vigeland was incontrovertible. Keywords Gustav Vigeland, Oslo, Moderní revue, Stanisław Przybyszewski, Sztuka, Edvard Munch, Auguste Rodin, symbolism, decadence, 19th century.
Czech book designs of 1960s
Šafka, Václav ; Klimešová, Marie (advisor) ; Hubatová - Vacková, Lada (referee)
The aim of this diploma thesis is to describe Czech book designs of the1960s within the field of contemporary art discourse and praxis. Book designs, for Czech designers, typographers and artists - limited by communist régime - was very common artistic platform moving between the fine and applied arts. Thus focusing on the description of institutional structures producing books in the 1960s is crucial in this thesis, however, insight into creative praxis and contemporary artistic discussion is equally important, too.
Steelworking by selected Czech and British artists from 1990 to the present
Štěpánová, Adéla ; Klimešová, Marie (advisor) ; Štefková, Zuzana (referee)
The clean shiny surfaces that steel allows can be used to create art. These are not necessarily separate sculptures, but also experimental metallurgical fire painting on steel surfaces. Bachelor thesis introduces stainless steel objects of leading British sculptors, Anthony Caro, Tony Cragg or Anish Kapoor. Even in the Czech Republic, work with this alloy is not neglected. The work focuses on large sculptures of Aleš Veselý, steel combined with glass in the creation of Marian Karel and stainless steel sculptures of Michal Gabriel. The speech then turns to metal paintings by Ladislav Vlna, which he creates by heating steel plates. I am interested in the relationship between Czech and foreign artists working with this alloy. I ask if it is possible to create quality art from this metal, which is most often used in industrial production. Keywords steel, stainless steel, sculptures, metallurgical painting, Anthony Caro, Anish Kapoor, Tony Cragg, Michal Gabriel, Marian Karel, Aleš Veselý, Ladislav Vlna

The Mesha Stele: The Translation and Analysis of an Epigraphic Text
Klimešová, Michaela ; Prudký, Martin (advisor) ; Čapek, Filip (referee)
This thesis introduces Mesha stele to Czech audience. The most important task was a translation of the original text into Czech and accompaning concise commentary. There are a few rewrites of several authors, which were exploited for the translation. The fundamental text is taken from Gibson. The Smelik's version was a pattern for partitioning of the text. With literary analysis, an emphasis was put on an analysis of expressions as well as comparison various parts of the texts and temporary customs as well. The stele is writen in specific temporal and local dialect, and therefore a comparison of the Mesha stele with other inscriptions of that era was quite rewarding. Separate chapter deals with topography, which is hard to be grasped. Reader might appreciate a matching of ancient and modern places on a few maps and charts. Very important part of this work is a comparison of the Mesha stele and the text from 2 Kings 3 citing Mesha, the king of Moab, who fought with the kings of Izrael, Judah, and Edom. Old Testament devotes quite long chapter to this ruler. For the completeness, there are also circumstances of the inscription's discovering. It is very bizzare because the stele was not found by controlled archeological explorations. It was even destructed and the way to its renovation was very complicated and...
Applied graphic work of the painter Jiří Balcar
Špinková, Tereza ; Klimešová, Marie (advisor) ; Lahoda, Vojtěch (referee)
The Bachelor thesis Applied graphic work of the painter Jiří Balcar aims to discover and summarize Balcar's applied work throughout his life. The thesis is divided into two main parts: the first deals with the layout of books and periodicals, the second one looks at the design of film posters. The chapter on designing the book outlines the problem of illustration. The main focus of this study was to find a connection between Balcar's paintings and applied art. The same way as in Balcar's graphics and paintings, he goes through applied arts from expressionist depiction of a man in the city over lettristic Decrees to abstraction. After 1965 he returns again to figuration and to a man, surrounded by artifacts, referring to the modern contemporary world. However, in addition to this broad similarity, making posters and some graphic design publications shows another dimension of his work that does not appear in the paintings and graphics. This thesis is primarily a monograph; the Czech environment and the global context had to be completely removed due to the limited scope of this work.

Parent Center operators as "nurseries"
Poláková, Šárka ; Hejzlarová, Eva (advisor) ; Klimešová, Magdalena (referee)
The parent center is currently the phenomenon, which is compared with the "State" schools or more today to discuss "the children's group" devoted less attention. And, in particular, in the section that deals with the care of children without parents. Although the parent centers help solve one of the social and political problems, the Czech Republic- the lack of places in nursery schools, in crèches, they lack support. Legislative support, support the child care area in MC without the participation of the parents. In the Czech Republic currently operates a total of 427 MC and in the Liberec region, on which I focused in the empirical part, has 21 maternity center. Of these 21 parent service center to care for children without parental involvement provides a total of 14 maternity center. And the MC feels the need to legislative support, which would be welcomed by, clearer rules for the operation of the parent center, especially in the environment of a child without the participation of the parents. This support is important in all activities that MC. Maternity Center is not just about "meeting", but also on the promotion of intergenerational cohabitation, create facilities for families with children, and last but not least, active participation to facilitate the return of women and men back into the...
Zorka Ságlová
Bučilová, Lenka ; Klimešová, Marie (advisor) ; Juříková, Magdalena (referee)
Zorka Ságlová was born in Humpolec on 14 August 1942. Between 1961 and 1966 she studied at the Academy of Arts, Architecture and Design in Prague in the textile studio of Antonín Kybal. From informel paintings she moved to structures created out of basic geometrical elements based on a particular textile structure - sateen weave. In 1968 she exhibited her works at the New Sensitivity, an exhibition presenting new tendencies of constructive art, and she became a part of this important phenomenon in Czech art. Her latest objects presented at this exhibition led her to the idea of the viewer as an active participant on the creation of her artworks. This resulted in four actions taking place in the open landscape and an event called Hay, straw in the prestigious Gallery of Václav Špála in 1969. For this work she was largely critisized by the communist media as well as the Czech artistic community. This all led to her isolation in the 70's and 80's. From 1976 she created a series of tapestries. During this work she discovered a rabbit/hare as her emblematic symbol for a long period. She started to collect all relevant information about its significance in various cultures. In 1984 she returned to painting. She updated her structures based on sateen weave by using thousands of rabbit silhouettes instead of...
Post-synthesis synthesis: Czech kinetic art of the 60's and the following creative techniques of its protagonists
Sloupová, Andrea ; Klimešová, Marie (advisor) ; Havránek, Vít (referee)
The study analyses situation on Czech, formerly Czechoslovak, art scene during 70's and 80's of the twentieth century in context of the progress of kinetism. It addresses the question whether and how the kinetism as a synthesis of visual arts, architecture, theater, film and music but also science and technology has been promoted after the demise of the group of the same name. The study is divided into the three basic parts. After introducing the problem by attempt to delimit the kinetism on conceptual and temporal basis the first part follows the initial, rather sporadic, attempts of capturing the motion in the visual arts in a period of the first half of twentieth century. The substantial focus of this part is on the work of Zdenek Pesanek. The second part provides a brief insight by comparison and references into the aggradizement period of international kinetism that occurred in the 50s and through to 70s. In parallel with movement in the West it follows two particular groupments of kinetists in the Eastern block - the Muscovite group called Dvizhenie and the Prague's group Synthesis. The last, essential part of the study concentrates on several Czech personalities from 70s and 80s whose approaches of handling the topic represent various types of kinetism - luminodynamism and luminodynamic environment,...
