Bohuslav Reynek

Petrkov 1892 - Petrkov 1971

Illustrated Catalogue Raisonné of graphic work

This first illustrated catalogue raisonné [illustrated descriptive catalogue], designed with the help of a computer database, provides a way of seeing and understanding the whole graphic work of Bohuslav Reynek in its chronological development. The census of work was collected from 1984 to 2011, essentially in France and the Czech Republic, in public and private collections. The works were identified and technical data established in close collaboration with the artist’s two sons, Jiří and Daniel Reynek, with the curators of the public collections, and specialists on Reynek’s work.

The originality of this database lies in its chronological organisation and its architecture, with links between the pages of works and various external general tables (collections, shows, bibliography), making it possible to follow each work in its specific features. If the work is an engraving, in particular in colour, each print made is considered as a standalone work and is entered as a variant with its own identity, listed in its place of conservation. The catalogue data thus corresponds to an iconographic ensemble that has not been available until now: each catalogue entry of the listed work is accompanied by a visual.
