Prague, the Crown of Bohemia, 1347-1437
Exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. September 20, 2005 - January 3, 2006.
Crowned King of Bohemia in 1347, Charles IV sought to make his capital city - Prague - the cultural rival of Paris and Rome. The remarkable flowering of art that resulted will be celebrated in an exhibition that draws together some 200 stunning examples including panel paintings, goldsmith's work, illuminated manuscripts, sculpture, silk embroideries, and stained glass. These little-known masterpieces attest to the wide-ranging achievements of the hundreds of artists affiliated with Prague and the Bohemian crown during the reign of Charles IV and his two sons, Wenceslas IV and Sigismund.
Drawing on numerous collections in the Czech Republic as well as other European and American collections, the exhibition has been organized in collaboration with Prague Castle Administration.
Accompanied by a publication.
