The exhibition Bohemian Glass: The Great Masters will recount the emancipation of Bohemian glass from its traditional categorization as applied and decorative art, as well as its use in the creation of influential abstract sculptural works in Bohemia (now the Czech Republic) after the Second World War.

Exhibited artists:
Václav Cigler
Vladimír Kopecký
Stanislav Libenský and Jaroslava Brychtová
Miluše Roubíčková and René Roubíček

Together with the works by the six trailblazing artists of contemporary Bohemian glass sculpture, a selection of photographs by Josef Sudek from the Glass Labyrinth series will also be exhibited.
