Arts & Crafts / Applied Art

In addition to the large sets of glass and ceramics, foreign and Czech chinaware, iron, tin and precious metal works, clocks and watches, sacral art, posters and graphic sheets, the exposition also presents a representative selection from the collection of ancient art and an exotic collection of handicraft works from Near and Far East. A separate part commemorates Ladislav Sutnar, a native of Pilsen and the leading personality of Czechoslovak functionalist work and internationally recognized representative of visual design. In addition to the quality of the exhibits in terms of art and history, the method of their presentation is also important. The exposition builders exhibited the artefacts in a similar manner as they had been at the beginning of the last century, i.e. in great quantities, in groups collecting objects by materials and styles typical for certain periods, and without any further distracting information. Thus, the objects only make impression through their own handicraft quality, urging us to ponder, and inspiring. Any worked out legends needed, more detailed information and comments to the individual exhibits are separated from the showcases, being served through the latest visual means – in contrast to the past.
