The catalogue accompanying the retrospective exhibition of the sculptor Olbram Zoubek
The catalogue accompanying the retrospective exhibition of the sculptor Olbram Zoubek (born 1926) at the Prague Castle Riding School features three key texts – the first is Zoubek’s own look back on his life and the other two are by his close friends, the sculptor Zdeněk Palcr and the classical philologist Eva Stehlíková. They deal with key themes of Zoubek’s work, namely plasticity and his relationship to Greek antiquity. Palcr’s essay, originally included in a private publication to mark Zoubek’s fiftieth birthday, was among the first theoretical texts written on his work. In her treatise of 1987, Eva Stehlíková examines the relationship between modern art and Greek antiquity that had such an influential impact on his work. The catalogue is designed by Luboš Drtina and contains new photographs by David Stecker, Zoubek’s biography and a list of the exhibited works. It is also being published in an English-language version. For more information see www.olbramzoubek.cz.
