Connoisseurs and scholars throughout the world regard Czech glass as a phenomenon of extraordinary importance that has had an impact on many fields of social science and technology. From an art-historical perspective, the development of Bohemian glassmaking from the late 17th century onwards illustrates and documents the outstanding ability of the Czech art scene to readily respond to the latest stylistic changes and stimuli.

In existence for three centuries, the Harrach glassworks in Neuwelt in the Krkonoše Mountains has been acknowledged as one of the most prominent glass enterprises to have made a significant contribution to the international acclaim of Czech glass. Throughout every stage of Bohemia’s glass production, from the early 18th century to the end of the 20th century, the Harrach glassworks played a progressive and quite often even a determining role in terms of both style and technology.

This exhibition project was undertaken by the Museum of Decorative Arts in Prague in collaboration with the West Bohemian Museum in Pilsen and its outcome is a comprehensive, thoroughly researched art-historical survey of the versatile glass output of the Harrach works as viewed throughout its existence: from its Baroque beginnings, the great many artistic facets of the Biedermeier and Revival styles, followed by the highly original Art Nouveau idiom and the Decorativism movement, the innovative approaches to glass design after 1950, all the way to contemporary glass.

The exhibition is accompanied by an interactive programme for visitors.

Ad honorem PhDr. Jarmila Brožová, CSc. (1923–2012)

The exhibition is held under the patronage of Karel Schwarzenberg, Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Czech Republic.

The exhibition has been made possible thanks to the kind support of the Sklárna Novosad & syn glassworks in Harrachov, and Georg Höltl of the Glasmuseum, Passau.

A copiously illustrated book in Czech and English editions has been produced by the Arbor vitae publishing house and the Museum of Decorative Arts in Prague to accompany the exhibition.
