The conception of lace began to radically change in the late 1950´s. It completely departed from its traditional function and became a three-dimensional monumental piece. The innovative, artistically independent approach towards lace, connected with perfect knowledge of clasic techniques, had encouraged a rich creation of three generations of female artists. Their contribution to the development in the world has been proven many times by the receipt of awards at international exhibitions — the firs award at Expo in Brussels 1958, later Expo in Montreal 1967 and to a number of awards form the International Lace Biennial in Brussels. Now the artists are being sought a new approach to lace only with difficulties.

The publication was issued to accompany the exhibition in the Museum of Decorative Arts in Prague, July – August, 2004.
