The painter and illustrator Zdeněk Burian who was born one hundred years ago this year (11th February 1905, Kopřivnice, Northern Moravia). This is the first exhibition to embrace his entire life’s work in all its breadth, including his well-known book illustrations, book illustrations never published and paleontological reconstructions (many of which feature in museums and galleries worldwide), as well as less-known pictures with geographical or ethnographical subject-matter and his virtually unknown uncommissioned paintings – paintings of well-known figures, relatives and friends, not to mention still-lifes and allegories. Many of the pictures have never been reproduced or exhibited before.

Burian’s oeuvre can only be presented in all its breadth of genre and so extensively (some 400 original works) thanks to the cooperation of many institutions and private collectors from the entire Czech Republic. The exhibition also comprises a large number of documentary photographs, examples of published books and various artefacts illustrating the painter’s life and times.

In conjunction with this exhibition Gallery has published an extensive full-colour monograph of Zdeněk Burian plus a shorter catalogue in colour, both with texts by the exhibition’s curator Vladimír Prokop.

Antonín Slavíček 1870–1910


Exhibition will be held from 17 March to 5 September 2004
Municipal Library, Mariánské náměstí 1, Prague 1

Author of the exhibition: Jana Orlíková

This retrospective exhibition of one of the founders of the modern tradition in Czech art presents to the public 250 paintings from various periods of his work. Slavíček’s work is characterised by a maximum truthfulness and searching for new contacts and paths. He was inspired by the landscape of the Českomoravská vysočina (Bohemian-Moravian Highlands) and by the pulsating life of his native Prague. The last major exhibition of his work was held more than forty years ago.
