“The Masters of Dreams” (Władcy Snów) exhibition in Cracow’s International Cultural Center is the first retrospective of Czech Symbolism to be shown in Poland.

It features over 130 artworks, paintings, drawings, prints, and sculptures drawn from 30 national galleries and rarely opened private collections.

“The Polish audience is familiar with the art of the French and Belgian artists, but not so much with the excellent art by the Czech Symbolists from the turn of the 19th and 20th centuries. We want to acquaint the visitors with Czech Symbolism and draw their attention to the many parallels between it and the art of the Young Poland [a modernist period in the Polish art]”, the exhibition curator Natalia Żak said.

Title of the exhibition is an accurate representation of the spirit of Czech Symbolism; the art depicts fairylike and mythical motifs and is suspended between dream and reality.

The exhibition is a joint venture of the International Cultural Center with the Olomouc Museum of Art and the Prague publishing house Arbor Vitae.
