In 1904 my family moved from Bohemia to New York where my great-grandfather had been offered a job as a cabinet maker at the Steinway Piano factory in Queens.
Back in Prague a hundred and ten years later
beauty and fantasy are still part of everyday life.
The main square
the Charles Bridge by moonlight
In an ancient city where modern life proceeds as usual
there are new museums and galleries.
At the Prague National Gallery interactive artwork
19th century Czech painting has a very dark side.
Back in New York City an entirely different aesthetic.
