Veletrzni Palac, Prague - An October Selection

Posted on the 11 October 2014 by Elizabethwix

 

The Czech National Gallery was an amazing treat because so much of the contents were so unfamiliar - lots and lots of artists I'd never heard of before - particularly 19th century Czech ones as well as a couple of outstanding Klimts. The whole place is huge. I started gathering a collection of dark gems.

Herewith a sampling:

A film poster from the 20's. A very small prize for anyone working out the iconography of this one...

A cops and robbers poster from the same period.

Last of all, a costume hanging to dry in a courtyard from the 1940's - possibly the most haunting  of all the images.
