  • Under the reign of Emperor Charles IV and his son King Wenceslas IV, the city on the Vltava became the largest metropolis in the region, the seat of the empire (Caput Regni) and the "Golden City of Prague". This also provided the best conditions for the development of book illumination. The court, the church and the university attracted a growing number of authors and readers. Painters and illuminators now came from all over Europe to take advantage of this flourishing situation. The artists, many of them immigrants from Silesia, Moravia, Austria and Franconia, combined their local art with inspiration from Italian and French art to Bohemian variants of the so-called "International Style". As a result of this lively exchange, the Bohemian influence spread all over Europe: Prague took on a position that was as important as Paris, Avignon or Bologna. The course provides an overview of this era by means of exemplary case studies. In addition, it introduces the necessary knowledge concerning the terminology and technique of book illumination.
