This exhibition is a kind of follow-up to the exhibition Hidden from the Eyes: Underdrawings in panel paintings from the 14th–16th centuries in the Collections of the National Gallery in Prague.
This one presents the extraordinary details in medieval paintings and the way they were created in medieval workshops. It focuses on decorative techniques, the individual types of decorative designs in both paintings and sculptures, and their stylistic form. Visitors will be able to study the vast array of punched, stencil and sgraffito decoration, as well as the technique of tin relief used in the exhibition's original artworks. Accompanying information is available on tablets placed near the artworks in the exhibition.
