Toyen: The Dreaming Rebel @ NG Waldstein Riding School

09. 04 2021 - 15. 08 2021

Toyen is one of the most original and best-known twentieth-century Czech artists; she also rose to fame in her own lifetime in France, which became her permanent home in 1947. All over the world her distinct oeuvre and fresh attitudes have been attracting ever-growing interest both in her and her work, yet opportunities to see it in its entirety have been scarce.

The exhibition is conceived chronologically and divided into time-specific parts to mirror key periods of Toyen’s career. It likewise highlights Toyen’s recurring signature themes such as eroticism and alchemy. It also showcases her extensive work in illustration in addition to her paintings and drawings. Importance is also given to Toyen’s crucial collaborations with her friends from the Prague and Paris Surrealist groups ⁠–⁠ painters and poets such as Jindřich Štyrský, Jindřich Heisler, André Breton, Benjamin Péret, Radovan Ivsic, and Annie Le Brun.

Tickets for the exhibition must be reserved through a reservation system. Click here to buy and reserve your tickets today!
