The permanent exhibition of the Museum of Decorative Arts in Prague presents Czech Cubism as a style that conceptually combines fine art, applied arts and architecture. The display of furniture suites and individual pieces, together with accessory furnishings and objects made of ceramic, glass and metals offers an overview of the foremost creative achievements of Czech Cubism’s key exponents. Represented are architects and designers Pavel Janák, Josef Gočár, Josef Chochol, Vlastislav Hofman, Otakar Novotný and František Kysela. Their works are complemented by Cubist paintings by Emil Filla, Bohumil Kubišta, Josef Čapek and Václav Špála, and sculptures by Otto Gutfreund. A screening of contemporary and period photographs featuring Prague‘s Cubist and Rondo-Cubist buildings and designs documents the influence of Cubism on architecture.
