Description

The birth of Czech Cubism transformed Prague into one of pre-War Europe's centres of avant-garde art. It manifested itself across architecture, the applied arts and graphic art with a unity of artistic expression that made it truly unique. This was a style in its own right, unmatched in scope and cohesiveness of concept by any other country. Glass, ceramics and furniture were presented at Cubist exhibitions on a par with painting, sculpture and architecture. The Museum of Decorative Arts in Prague houses one of the world's finest collections of Art Nouveau and Cubist art, embracing graphic arts and photography, furniture, metalwork, ceramics, fashion and a world-renowned glass collection. Primarily a showcase for the work of Czech artists and designers, the Museum also holds key pieces by prominent international artists. Published to coincide with the reopening of the Museum in 2017 after extensive renovation, this book aims to bring the range and wealth of the collection to a wider audience than ever before.
