A significant study of the extensive application of Cubist principles in the work of such Czech designers and architects as Josef Gocar, Pavel Janak, Jan Kotera, Vlastislav Hofman and Josef Capek, this substantial catalogue documents nearly 300 decorative objects and architectural projects, including inventive furnishings, ceramics, drawings for residential and institutional structures, metalware and posters drawn chiefly from museums in Prague and Brno. Nine scholarly essays discuss the circumstances surrounding the rise of Cubism as the dominant style in early 20th-century Czech art, the reflection of Cubist aesthetics in decorative arts, and the contributions of individual artists.
