The jury also gave a special mention to Věra Laštovičková for her study “Architektur als ‘versteinerte Musik’: Die theoretische Reflexion der Architektur in der deutschen Romantik und bei Bernhard Grueber” (Umění LII, 2014, pp. 439–453) and to Tomáš Murár for the essay “‘The Entertainment of His Most Excellent Majestie Charles II’: Royalty Representation and its Visualization in a Festival Book by John Ogilby and Wenceslaus Hollar” (Umění LII, 2014, pp. 516–528).
