The Czech language book with English a German summaries presents an exceptional body of works decorated with a specific type of painting on glass and porcelain. Usually, these works have mainly been attributed to Ignaz Preissler (1676–1741), but most recently his father Daniel (1636–1733) has also been recognized. Both artists were active in the town of Kunštát (Kronstadt) in eastern Bohemia. The publication includes a catalogue of the objects housed in museums and private collections in the Czech Republic, together with reproductions of outstanding pieces kept in foreign collections. This is the first book to offer a comprehensive look at the noteworthy (and at times controversially interpreted) collection.
This book was published by the Museum of Decorative Arts in Prague to accompany the exhibition held in the Museum from the April 23th to June 14th, 2009.
