At the end of 1934, Oskar Kokoschka (1886–1980) planned to travel to Prague for ten days in order to produce a portrait of the Czechoslovakian president Tomas Garrigue Masaryk. The original plan developed into a four-year stay. The Austrian Expressionist created more than 30 oil paintings while he was there, including 15 cityscapes of Prague. For the first time a catalogue is dedicated exclusively to Kokoschka's works produced in Czechoslovakia and studies his oeuvre within the political and artistic context of the history of the period.
