Jiří Petrbok. The Burning Heart

Jiří Petrbok. The Burning Heart

Otto M. Urban (ed.)
680 CZK

The book published to accompany the homonymous exhibition devoted to one of the most outstanding contemporary Czech artists is defined by four basic themes associated with home – from a strictly personal view to a more general perception of home as a specifically defined place. Petrbok’s paintings superbly mirror one great human experience of the world around us, of a world of immense fear and profound love; his works are a reflection of the past half-century of Czech and international history, a reflection that is caustic and ironic, as much as intimate and sensitive.
