Čkyně, July 5. 2014 – Exhibition definitely worth seeing. Summer exhibition of texts and graphics of Josef Váchal running till the end of September on disposal in the Ckyne Synagogue.

 

When, in the year 1927 Váchal set out to one of hist tours of the Šumava mountains, the theme of a new book stroke him and he waded in a work unprecedented by that time - he wrote the text, created  the coloured woodcuts and even formed new. origin calligraphy for his book.
The Váchal author book came to the existence: "Šumava Dying and Romantic".

 

His work on the book Váchal started on July 19, 1928 and finished on May 3, 1931. Only 11 issues of the book originated and three of them remained loose leaf.

The art essayist Jiří Olič wrote: „The power of the Váchal´s vision of the Šumava is not in the v allegoric compositions, but in the images of the nature, in the  personification of weaving, flushing, rotting, germinating, growth, and extinct. Art is in the first place. But at the beginning of the 1930s just art was not enough for Váchal. To be an artist was already not sufficient. Váchal wants to be the voice crying in the wilderness. He creates the artistic visions where the decay and ruin dominate. The Šumava is a great metaphor for him, divination of the ecological catastrophes ...“. He definitely did not mean a beautiful book only.

The curator of the exhibition, artist, graphic artist and illustrator Jan Chaloupek prepared the exhibition of 28 sheets of the texts and ten graphics.
The titles of the texts so be the invitation:


THE AUTHOR OF THE BOOK makes breakfast…
Preamble for the work…..
...the hoarfrost does not leave any more…

KLATOVY and ON THE WAY FROM THE MOUNTAINS
ŠUMAVA dying and romantic
However still without disturbs…
ŠUMAVA! Valuta steadily declining!
Mire of soft, volatile lands…

 

With the vernissage Jan Chaloupek said:  „Read one, two sheets, think about them and come again“.
