Original jewellery inspired by Alfons Mucha’s unrealized sketches.

The visual design of the exposition has been significantly contributed to by the Barrandov Studio, the main partner of the exhibition, which created requested design elements, provided production design drawings, aided in determining the technologies of the actual production and participated in the selection of furniture, lighting and other props subsequently sources from the vast collection of the Barrandov Studio Fundus prop rental. The project is installed on the ground floor of the newly restored museum building where the Barrandov Studio has created an impeccable illusion of a French café from around 1900 for visitors of the museums.

KAMIL LHOTÁK'S WORLD IN PAINTING, DRAWING, GRAPHICS AND FILM

June 30 – September 23, 2018 / Interactive Gallery Becher villa, Karlovy Vary
Opening hours: daily except Mondays 10 am - 5 pm; during the Karlovy Vary IFF daily 10 am - 7 pm

Painter, illustrator, and graphic artist Kamil Lhoták (1912–1990), like other members of Group 42, was inspired by the city and technical elements of the city landscape. Landscape stills, the world of sports and the beginnings of modern civilization all became subjects of his magical, meditative, humorous and emotive stories. The connection of this genre to the world of filmmaking came about through Adolf Branald’s collaboration on the film Vintage Car; photographs and documents from the film will be a part of the exhibition prepared in cooperation with the Kamil Lhoták Society and Barrandov Studio.
