Large-scale tapestries inspired by the artworks of Josef Čapek and several other Czech painters are currently on display at the Imperial Stables of Prague Castle. The stunning pieces were created by the Moravian Tapestry Manufactory in Valašské Meziříčí, which was established more than a century ago.

Eleven large tapestries in striking colours inspired by the linocuts of Josef Čapek form the core of the exhibition, called Reborn in Tapestry, which will run at Prague Castle’s Imperial Stables until April 23.

The famous avant-garde painter, who was influenced by Cubism, created his linocuts between the years 1915 and 1919. The wall hangings based on his artworks were woven in the Moravian Tapestry Manufactory in Valašské Meziříčí during the past year.
