The book traces Spanish arts and crafts preserved in the Czech Republic, both in the form of museum acquisitions and as former furnishings of aristocratic residences. Apart from works housed in the Museum of Decorative Arts in Prague, the volume features objects from the holdings of the North Bohemian Museum in Liberec, the Silesian Museum in Opava, and other institutions. The selection of exhibits attests to the existence of a superb and thriving culture that flourished in parallel with the rapid growth in the Central Europe of those days.
The publication was issued to accompany the exhibition in the Museum of Decorative Arts in Prague, June – October 1997.
