The exhibition, using Czech works, explores how artists specializing in humoristic illustrations and satirical drawings responded to both real and fictitious Cubist works. It also explores how modern caricature was applied in the search for new art forms, since its essence lies in deformations, visual symbolism and autonomy of expressive means. There are also displayed portrait caricatures of the The Group of Fine Artists’s members, as well as satirical drawings and caricatures produced by the Czech Cubists themselves.
