František Bílek’s Chýnov Visions long-term exhibition

This exhibition presents you extraordinary Art Deco and Symbolist work of artist, which built in his native town Chýnov place for his activities in the form of individualistic variety of family house with the studio. The architecture of the house built by František Bílek in 1898 from raw brickwork with contemporary folkish wooden components and cuttings refers to the Chýnov traditional architecture. The representative selection of works represents artist mainly as a sculptor, includes also some samples of original furniture sets designed by Bílek for his daughter Berta and his son František Jaromír.

From the beginning of the 2020 season, František Bílek’s studio in Chýnov will present a small trailer for a long-term exhibition to be held on the 3rd floor of Villa Bílek in Prague in May 2021, which will focus on Bílek’s works inspired by his lifelong friend, the poet Otokar Březina.
