Helena Železná–Scholzová / Common and Feast Days (Prayer)
Also much appreciated was the immediate way she captured life’s fleeting moments, as well as impressions or memories. Her sculpture Common and Feast Days (Prayer) she borrowed for the exhibition from the Modern Gallery in Prague, attracted particular attention (in 1960 it was transferred from the National Gallery in Prague to the Gallery of Fine Art in Ostrava). Helene Zelezny–Scholz was an outstanding figure in the art world, who dedicated her life to sculpture and its stylistic changes during the last century. Nevertheless she preserved the exceptional emotion that was present in the theme portrayed.
