Josef Sima
The Road to Le Grand Jeu
Apr 19 – Jul 28, 2019
National Gallery Prague
Prague, Czech Republic

The exhibition Josef Šíma: The Road to Le Grand Jeu presents the early work as well as masterpieces of one of the most influential figures of modern art. The Waldstein Riding School of the National Gallery Prague will host it from 19 April 2019.

The exhibition presents the work of Josef Šíma (1891–1971) from his beginnings in Brno to his encounter with the poets of The Great Game (Le Grand Jeu), a rather noteworthy and today somehow legendary French group.

“The exhibition shows to what extent Šíma’s involvement in this adventure was one of the key impulses for his art production. In the brief period of 1929–1931, Šíma became the group’s chief artist and the other members – poets interpreted his artworks,” says Anna Pravdová, the exhibition’s curator.
