Life as a work of art
Heinrich Vogeler and Wenzel Hablik
Wenzel Hablik, born in 1881 in Brüx (West Bohemia), was a trained carpenter and porcelain painter who, like his contemporary Heinrich Vogeler, was not only active as a painter and graphic artist – both artists pursued the idea of the Gesamtkunstwerk.
In addition to paintings and graphic works, Hablik’s oeuvre includes above all handicraft design. He worked on visionary architectural designs and created furniture as well as interiors. The exhibition presents his work in the remises and shows parallels and differences to Vogeler’s work in the historical residence.
