Major Kamil Lhoták exhibition opening in Prague

A major new exhibition of works by the Czech painter and illustrator Kamil Lhoták is due to get underway at Prague’s Municipal House on Wednesday. The show, entitled Retrospective, features over 100 oil paintings and includes 19 works never previously presented in public.

The pieces on show have been borrowed from a total of almost 50 private collectors and institutions. Lhoták, who died in 1990 at the age of 78, is one of the most popular Czech painters of the 20th century.
