From 23 February, the Czech Centre of Paris hosts the exhibition Bohuslav Reynek, Don Quixote in Petrkov on its premises at 18 rue Bonarparte.
Alongside prints from the album dedicated to Cervantes’ hero—the only copy, put together and presented in Grenoble in 1960—the exhibition features landscapes, scenes from everyday life and Biblical figures, like so many engraved scenes inscribed in the Czech artist’s familiar world in Petrkov.
In partnership with the Renaud-Reynek Endowment Fund and the Romarin Association, the Friends of Bohuslav Reynek and Suzanne Renaud.
24 February to 31 March 2017
