Biedermeier – the lifestyle as well as artistic style of the first half of the nineteenth century – was created by aristocracy and wealthy bourgeoisie, and gradually affected all strata of society. In the spirit of emerging civil society it was professing the ideals of practicality and simplicity, discovering the charm of everyday objects and pleasures as well as the beauty of nature and natural materials. Characteristic features of Biedermeier – the restrained elegance and straightforwardness – echoed the general modernisation of society and had come to embody the foreshadowing of modern design.

The guide has been published by the Museum of Decorative Arts in Prague to accompany the exhibition held in Prague Castle Riding-school from the 28th of May to the 28th of September 2008.
