The Panorama and Techniques of Illusion

pp. 103–113 (Czech), summary 114 (English)

From the end of the 18th century, the panoramas were becoming a popular mass entertainment and spectacle. Relatively soon after the invention was announced, also Vienna and subsequently Prague received their panoramas (made public in 1803 and 1804). The article studies the period aspects of the reception of panoramas on the basis of Anton Geusau’s as-yet unpublished description of the panorama of Vienna, whose production was closely related to the Prague panorama. The author notices technical and visual means to create panoramas as examples of the most illusive period medium as well as the changes in the period aesthetics, which are in the background of the reception of panoramic paintings.

Key words: Bohemian Lands, 19th century, cultural history, panoramas
