Charles F. A. Voysey's Forgotten Designs for Southern Moravia

Zapomenuté projekty Charlese F. A. Voyseyho pro jižní Moravu

pp. 21-33 (Czech summary)

In 1912 the architect Charles Francis Annesley Voysey designed a family tomb and in 1922 a country seat for the Jihlava entrepreneur Karl Löw, owner of the largest textile factories in western Moravia. Until now, it was assumed that these designs were never executed. The article indicates that an altered version of the country house was built in Henčov near Jihlava, and that Löw's tomb in the Jihlava cemetery, from 1915, can also be attributed to Voysey.

Archivy vnímání. Krajina v procesuálních svitcích Miloše Šejna

Archives of Perception: the Landscape in the Processional Scrolls of Miloš Šejn

pp. 44-60 (English summary)

In 1983-1989, Miloš Šejn created a set of about fifty processional scrolls on the theme of the landscape. The author of the article interprets them in the broader context of general issues of perception and touches on some of the older, similar treatments (Daoji, Caspar David Friedrich), which depict a radical subjective experience of the landscape through an image of that landscape.

Silesiaca Bohemiae. The Wrocław Retables in Bohemia

pp. 69-75

The report treats the retable of the high altar of the dean's Church of the Assumption of Our Lady in Chrudim and the altar retable from the parish building in the same town, dating from the first half of the 16th century.
