While I search for the artist information for this sculpture, I’ll post it here in hopes someone can help identify it. This was photographed in Prague in November, 2013. A nearby gallery may have been exhibiting work by the same artist. This embarrassing lack of detail is a great reminder to myself to take better notes when I’m shooting. I can’t even name the intersection.
For more art in Prague, we recommend the National Gallery at Veletržní Palace. Though the building is a boring example of 1980s institutional architecture (the original burned down in 1974), don’t be fooled. The interior soaring spaces hold plenty of interest, and the permanent exhibit is a great survey of contemporary art and design. What inspired my visit was the temporary exhibit of Alfons Mucha. It consists of 20 huge canvases (more than 6 x 8 meters each) known as the Slav Epic. It’s a great opportunity to see these works collectively, and the exhibit runs through 2015. There’s time!
