Touches of the Baroque
Fourteen castings of sculptures documenting the major epochs of 17th- and 18th-century Baroque art in Bohemia are displayed on the below-ground level of the Schwarzenberg Palace. The display is centred around copies of allegorical heads by Matthias Bernard Braun from the Virtues and Vices cycle housed at Kuks Chateau in eastern Bohemia. Captions are written in Braille and large print.
13th to 15th century Bohemian mediaeval sculpture castings
The collection of twelve sculpture castings is displayed on the ground floor of the Convent of St Agnes of Bohemia. The visitor can follow the stylistic transformation of sculpture across several centuries. In addition to the late-Romanesque high relief from the St George Basilica, there are also works dating from the rule of Charles IV and Wenceslaus IV. The work of well-known sculptor and architect Petr Parléř can be seen in portrait busts from the triforium of the St Vitus Cathedral in Prague. Each exhibit is accompanied with large-print text and a basic Braille caption.
The exhibition also offers a model of the convent in the “black kitchen”, which is designed to be touched. The structures are designated in braille and a concise guide book in braille describing the convent’s history is available upon request.
