Bohumil Kubišta a české výtvarné umění 1905-2013 (Bohumil Kubišta and Czech Art 1905-2013)

With the subtitle “Intersections, Clashes, Overlaps”, this publication offers an analytical evaluation of the life, work and personal opinions of Bohumil Kubišta – one of the most important artists of the Czech inter-war avantgarde scene, yet a figure who has been largely neglected by art experts for over thirty years. This paradox between Kubišta’s enormous artistic contribution (indeed his central role in founding the avantgarde scene of the 1920s and 30s) and the lack of scholarly research into his work was the key inspiration behind this exhibition and the accompanying catalogue. The individual chapters focus on Kubišta’s own work and his influence on other artists and groupings. In his chapter, Jan Kudrna traces Kubišta’s influence on the Devětsil group, while Jiří Jůza explores how Kubišta influenced the art scene in the 1950s. The texts also encompass a range of artists (reaching right up to the present day) who have drawn inspiration from Kubišta’s works for a wide variety of reasons.
