MAJOR RESEARCH PROJECTS:
Project 1 - Gothic painting in north-west Bohemia - wall paintings in Laun district
2009 Slavetin nad Ohří (wall paintings), in frame of the research project under Prof. Jan Royt.

Collegium
Carolinum (CC), conference to the exhibition Böhmen-Bayern 2007
The project was studying painting in North-West Bohemia after the Hussite wars. At this time
the art in
Bohemia became very provincial and the most progressive tendencies started to come from
neighbouring
regions. My part was to describe and research the recently restored wall paintings in Slavietin.
Project 2 - The Sunday Christ (Ph.D.), 284 pgs., 2008
My dissertation work is a monograph on the late medieval devotional image of “Sunday
Christ”
(Feiertagschristus, Christo della Domenica, Svjeta Nedelja, Christ du dimanche, Sváteční
Kristus) I used my
own basic research and recent bibliography on this image (Koman, Reiss, and Rigaux) but the
concept of
the development is based more on the synthetic view by Gertrud Schiller. This unusual
popular image
survived almost exclusively as wall paintings in various parts of Europe. The original name
“Saynt Sonday”
shows the main sense of these devotional images. It was an allegorical depiction of the
Seventh day and
advent of Christ, as well as the promotion of the Eucharistic belief. It often includes various
scenes from
medieval daily life to deter people from the sin and labour on Sunday.
The main goal of this research was to create a complete catalogue of all examples of “The
Sunday Christ”
images in Europe and The British Isles. The catalogue includes 137 items of surviving or
destroyed
20
examples. The catalogue is unlike other books on this topic, because it shows the image in the
context of
literary parallels of moral educative literature and popular exempla. Sometimes The Sunday
Christ is
included in a composition of e.g. “The Seven Deadly Sins”, “The Mass of St. Gregory” or
“Warning to The
Blasphemers”. Sometimes the composition of “The Sunday Christ” includes other smaller
allegories, so
that the behaviour of the image is very similar to the place of so called Sunday letter and the
Vision of
Saint Paul in the moralist educative literature – they are very flexible and they appear in
various contexts.
I have included in the catalogue various new locations, e.g. Kutna Hora, Radonice (Bohemia),
Pfannsdorf
(Kärtnen), Lyss (Schweitz) an others.
I included in the catalogue also the Haywain Triptych by Hieronymus Bosch, which includes
motif of
suffering Christ’s by the people’s sins. I included not only new locations of the theme, but
also do not
consider in the catalogue later motifs connected to this theme, but I deal with them in the text.
I mean
especially 16. and 17 c. moralist genre – e.g. Niemand tortured by his tools, a pair of scissor
cutting to the
God’s eye in the Breugel’s Blue Coat, and other motifs that correspond with the protestant
written
mockery of this obscure popular cult. The PhD. Thesis is a very good basis to further research
in late
medieval Mahnbild, therefore it is a good basis to study in the direction of the proposed
project.

The PI has analysed and described over 5 000 items, located in the Rychnov (Reichenau)
castle in Eastern
Bohemia. He has researched in the family archives, and wrote a history of the Kolowrat
collections from
17th until 20th
century. He participates on an exhibition held in the National gallery in Prague this fall –
under the name “Kolowrat Treasures from the castle Rychnov nad Kneznou”.
He has written the main part of the book “Kolowrat Treasures from the castle Rychnov nad
Kneznou”(with English translation, to be published in October 2009). There were many
interesting
discoveries made as far as the history of collecting in Bohemian lands and reflections of the
Habsburg
collections among the Bohemian nobility.
