A Thousand Years of Czech Culture: Riches from the National Museum in Prague by Vladimir Brych, Narodni Muzeum V Praze

A catalogue of 212 objects from the National Museum of the Czech Republic representing the cultural history of the Czech lands (Bohemia, Moravia, and Silesia) dating back to the 6th century. Each item exemplifies an important historical and artistic milestone in both Czech culture and that of Europe in general. The color photographs are fine reproductions of the exhibits breadth detailing work in folk art, painting, illuminated manuscripts, lace, architecture, and music manuscripts. Ten essays written by Czech scholars augment the catalogue with interesting overviews of Czech Middle Ages history, religious influences, fine art from the 13th to the 19th century, theatre, music, and modern history. An additional highlight is the foreword written by V <a>clav Havel, President of the Czech Republic and playwright. Lacks an index. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
