The “Czech Art” Book Series

"Czech Art" is a series of monographs published by Kunsthalle Praha in cooperation with Academia Publishing and Kodl Gallery.

Each book is dedicated to the life, work and legacy of individual Czech artists, or addresses important topics of Czech art. The books will be accompanied by printed and electronic catalogues raisonnés.

Written by established art historians, these representative monographs aim to bring the wider public closer to artists who are not yet adequately presented in research and publications. In addition, we will be presenting artists who have been researched already, but the respective publications are no longer available on the book market.

At present, the following artists’ monographs are being prepared: -  Vincenc Beneš, Oldřich Blažíček, Emil Filla, Vojtěch Hynais, Antonín Chittussi, František Janoušek, Jiří Kars, Mikuláš Medek, Grigorij Musatov, Karel Souček, Václav Radimský and Václav Zykmund. The list of monographs continues growing.

Kunsthalle Praha is a visitor-oriented, exhibition- and research- driven museum of art dedicated to the realization of innovative art exhibitions, publications and educational activities that promote the understanding and appreciation of Czech and international modern and contemporary art. The building of the oncoming Kunsthalle Praha is located in Malá Strana in the centre of Prague and is scheduled to open its doors to visitors in 2019/2020.
