The exhibition of the distinguished fine artists shows the lyricism and captivating poetics of ten Czech painters. Although their works are unchangeable and different, what connects them, is that the authors were members of the Group 42. The pictures are understandable and they together offer an unrepeatable atmosphere.


Group 42 was a Czech artistic group officially established in 1942, having roots in 30´s. It was influenced by civilism, cubism, futurism, constructivism, and a bit of surrealism. Their work revealed a fascination with technology, focus on cities, industry and machine.
