Unique Renaissance art exhibition at Prague Castle

A new exhibition held under the auspices of President Vaclav Klaus starts today in the Imperial Stables in the area of Prague Castle. The exhibition focuses on the life of Bohuslav Hasistejnsky z Lobkovic, a nobleman, poet and humanist from the turn of the 16th century. The exhibitions displays the gems of Renaissance Bohemia.

Visitors can see, according to the curator of the exhibition Ivana Kyzourova, the most beautiful examples of Czech goldsmith during the reign of Jagiellon dynasty – three golden busts of St Wenceslav, St Adalbert of Prague and St Vitus that were made by Ladislaus Jagiellon for St Vitus Cathedral. Also the fragments of Bohuslav Hasistejnsky’s library are very unique, as the library was at his time one of the largest and most valuable libraries in Europe.

Many of the items will be displayed only for a short period of time and then replaced by replicas, as the light could destroy them. The exhibition is held until 1st July. The Prague Castle Administration consider this exhibition as one of the most significant event at Prague Castle.
