I was excited to see that an exhibition on Prague opened up in New York at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. “Prague, The Crown of Bohemia, 1347–1437” covers an important period in Czech history during which Prague was the capital of the Holy Roman Empire. Charles IV (Karel IV) was crowned king in 1347 and was followed by his two sons, Wenceslas IV and Sigismund. On display are 160 artworks that include panel paintings, goldsmiths’ work, illuminated manuscripts, sculpture, silk embroideries, and stained glass. The New York Times has a review and I also found one on the New York Brain Terrain blog.
The exhibition runs through January 3, 2006 and will then travel to Prague. I look forward to seeing it.
