Modern and Rondocubism

On the verge of the 20th century Prague architects started using diverse materials, such as cast iron, steel, glass – an innovation at the time. The Modern (Art Nouveau) reached Prague at last; here it was referred to as "Secese", following the name of the Vienna Secession, one of whose members was Alphonse Mucha. The works of this bright and memorable modernist artist are exhibited at the Prague Municipal House. Prague is home to many unique examples of the modernist architecture, including magnificent mosaics, delicate ornaments, opulent sculptures, and even bridges, like the Svatopluk Čech Bridge.

At the beginning of the 20th century the fashionable Cubism style reached Prague. Cubist-style houses with amazing geometry and proportions flawlessly blended in next to Baroque edifices (see, for example, House of the Black Madonna. Only in Prague you can find a Cubist lamppost! After the declaration of Czechoslovakia in 1918, Cubism developed into the Czech National style - Rondocubism, one of the most famous example of which is the Audrey Palace. The whimsicality of lines, the contrast of colours, the abstract forms of this masterpiece by Pavel Janak (1882-1956) combine the elements of Cubism and traditional Slavic art.
