1994
linocut on paper, 28 x 36 cm

Michal Pěchouček’s set of four linocuts (Two Apparatuses, Breakfast – July 1970Siesta and Boat) of 1994 is one of his best works of the 1990s. Prague City Gallery has respected the wishes of the artist to keep this set together because it comprises the latest original prints made only in a small number of pieces ( Siesta won the 1995 Graphics Award). Pěchouček made the linocuts based on photographs from his family archives from the 1960s and 1970s. He was fascinated by these homemade photographic albums and they became one of the most important sources of inspiration of the elements of his art and style. The purchase of four linocuts made in 2015 (together with the purchase of four pastels School in Nature of 2000 a year later) complement the existing set of Pěchouček’s works already in the collections of Prague City Gallery, which in addition to two video projections (Kočárkárna, 2004 and Kouzelný skyscraper, 1999) also includes two figural embroidered paintings from the series Evening (2009-2010).
