Antonín Slavíček / Hvězda Park
The painting Hvězda Park from 1899 is an interesting example of the new approach to repre- senting real landscape that Slavíček then adopted. It depicts the forest park at Hvězda near Prague. The autumn landscape and the partly leafless deciduous trees evoke a melancholy mood. Fallen leaves cover the winding forest path lined with slender tree trunks. The path disappears in the distant gloom of the forest horizon that is veiled in a gentle haze.
