Renaud Reynek Endowment Fund
Bohuslav Reynek. Prints from the 1950s. Saint-Martin-d’Uriage (Isère), Le Belvédère, 1.02-10.03.2013.
The exhibition Bohuslav Reynek (1892-1971) – Prints from the 1950s provides a glimpse into the mysteries of a decade of creation, sheds light on the Czech artist’s deep ties with France and tells the story of the prints’ youth. They were born in Petrkov, collected in the privacy of houses in the Dauphiné and shown to the public at exhibitions in Grenoble, which this event recreates. For many years, landscapes, religious scenes and rare albums illustrated what could not be said by the artist in words in letters sent to France from dark Czechoslovakia. The works in the exhibition are from French private collections.
