During the reconstruction period, however, the Museum will be offering exhibitions in other buildings. One of these will be an exhibition of Czech Cubism that will be presented in the House of the Black Madonna at Ovocný trh and it will remain there until the end of 2017.
On the 12th October an exhibition opened in the House of the Black Madonna that is entitled “Lessons in Caricature – Cubism” and it will run till the 12th February 2017. Under the auspices of the Museum of Decorative Arts an exhibition of photographs of the architecture of Zdeněk Voženílek has also been installed in the Josef Sudek Gallery. It represents a unique cross-section of the suburban growth of Prague. The exhibition will run till the 15th January 2017.
This represents an architectural monument that is undergoing a gradual renovation. It is a two-storey Renaissance style house dating back to the years 1897-1899 that was designed by the Architect Josef Schulz. It has an ornate façade and a segmented roof. The vestibule of the building is enriched with stucco and the library, that is also located there (but is currently inaccessible, however), is equipped with baroque bookcases that were brought from the Monastery Library in Benešov. It is considered as representing one of the most beautiful reading rooms in Prague.
On the stairs you will find painted windows, while on the first floor, in the Votive Hall, both the walls and the ceiling are also painted. All of this will reopen again next year and once again we will be able to enjoy the beautiful and unique decoration of the Museum of Decorative Arts building.
