Georg Grosz and the „Czech Thorn“

Date: 29.08.2016 - 27.11.2016
Place: Trade Fair Palace

“A world of idleness, drink and beggary” – the work of the German artist Georg Grosz radically reflects the negative aspects of city life, social imbalance and a critical view of society. His work was widely known and disseminated in Bohemia shortly after the release of his most popular cycle Ecce homo (Behold the Man, 1922). Grosz influenced and inspired Czech artists, especially those associated with the satirical magazine Trn (Thorn). The Cabinet of Prints and Drawings offers visitors a display of drawings and watercolours by Czech artists – Vojtěch Tittelbach, František Tröster and Otakar Mrkvička – shown together with prints by Georg Grosz. The exhibition contains works created in the 1920s from the collections of the National Gallery in Prague.
