Václav Špála, Stooks in Rybná, Jan Slavíček, Harvest in the Orlické Mountains, both 1928

GAVU – Opus magnum

6. 4.– 2. 7. 2023

Curated by Karel Jaroš, Marcel Fišer 

The juxtaposition of two works created in 1928 in close proximity during one afternoon in the Orlické Mountains corresponds with the gallery’s primary exhibition, devoted to the stays of Czech painters in Corsica and southern France. The link connecting the two events is the figure of Jan Slavíček but also other personalities: Slavíček’s closest friends and peers – Josef Hubáček and Bedřich Piskač – as well as the slightly younger Bořivoj Žufan painted in both environments. Shortly before the origination of the exhibited canvases, President Masaryk built a villa for the daughters of his late son, the painter Herbert Masaryk, in what was then Německá Rybná. Their half-siblings, the children of Antonín Slavíček, would also arrive from time to time. Slavíček’s visitors also were his artist friends, and they painted in the immediate surroundings. In 1928, Václav Špála dwelled nearby Potštejn during summer. He also visited Rybná on that occasion, and he and Slavíček set out “in search of a motif”. A surviving photograph documents one of these painting sessions.
