Lenka Stolárová – Vít Vlnas (eds.)

The monograph presents the artist’s creative output, as well historical sources testifying to Škréta as an artist, his work and his era. The individual articles in this volume further expound and evaluate the new fi ndings arrived at in the course of the comprehensive interdisciplinary project Karel Škréta (1610-1674): His Work and His Era and the preparation by experts in the field of an exhibition of the same name. The findings are based on the conclusions reached during the contemporary Škréta-themed scholarly investigation centred on systematic archival and history research. Representative technical-technological and restoration investigation formed an important part of the research project, which occasionally brought essential, and at times even surprising, information about the variable nature of 17thcentury paintings in relation to the patrons who commissioned the work and the type of commission. Irrespective of the importance and relevance of the artistic merit of Karel Škréta as an individual painter, he can no longer be assessed and interpreted as a solitary genius who had arrived in a burnt land and whose monuntal work gradually fi lled the entire space of a hypothetical timeless historical period and a cultural vacuum. Recent research has indicated that the numerous questions concerning the "Bohemian Apelles" cannot be answered without devoting attention to the large number of individuals who filled Škréta's life: not only contemporary artists abroad and at home, but also members of his family, his patrons and commissioners of art, as well as collectors and a broad and variagated social spectrum, in which the artist lived and worked with admirable perseverance and possibly also a strictly formulated career strategy. This is why a substantial part of the volume contains an edition of archival resources. Archival research constituted the basic desideratum of Škréta-themed investigation: all art-historical volumes published in the 20th century were based on research conducted in the 19th century.
