The Czech National Gallery was an amazing treat because it contained so much that was unfamiliar to me - lots and lots of artists I'd never heard of before - particularly 19th century Czech ones. There are also a couple of outstanding Klimts. The whole place is huge. I started gathering a collection of dark gems.
Herewith a sampling:
All Soul's Day - I think she is on her way to lay a wreath at the cemetery.
She is tending to the battle-wounded, while Miss Ballgown presides over the chaos.
Oh no! A traffic accident...
Dead, you know...
Beware the water sprite
and the ghostly hand hovering over your desk.
A film poster from the 20's. A very small prize for anyone working out the exact iconography of this one...
A cops and robbers poster from the same period.
Last of all, a costume hanging to dry in a courtyard from the 1940's - possibly the most haunting of all the images.
