Flagship project: Gottfried Lindauer

The story of Gottfried Lindauer inspired The Gallery of West Bohemia in Pilsen to realise this unique exhibition, for the first time bringing around 44 portraits of Maoris from the late 19th century from New Zealand to Europe. The emigration of Czechs to New Zealand is also presented in the interactive exhibition in Pap-rna, prepared by Pavel Anděl as part of an investigation into the fate of Stod’s inhabitants. We asked eight contemporary painters to use the work of Lindauer as an inspiration and to prepare a separate exhibition of portraits of interesting people living with us in Pilsen.
