Jindřich Chalupecký Collection

The Collection of Jindřich Chalupecký at the Museum of Czech Literature testifies to the life of this important literary and art critic who was “banned” during the communist regime and it represents a valuable source documenting the entanglements between non-official Czechoslovak art and leading world artists and theoreticians.
