Our readers have not yet had the opportunity to explore the history of art in Bohemia and Moravia in
one single volume. This gap has been filled by the richly illustrated collaborative work of the Institute
of Art History at the Czech Academy of Sciences in Prague, which follows the transformation of art in
the Czech lands from the era of Great Moravia to the present. It explores painting, sculpture,
architecture, book illustrations, arts and crafts, photography, and other forms of artistic creation; 800
selected works put into the historical context of their origin.
