The Monuments of Baroque Prague

The post-White Mountain period included the 17th and the 18th centuries. The time of Recatholicization (Counterreformation) is related to the new artistic style – the Baroque, which has influenced and formed the architectural appearance of Prague until the present day. Next to the profane architecture of the aristocratic palaces and civic houses, extensive sacral constructions of temples and monasteries emerged, usually linked to the personalities of noteworthy painters, architects, and sculptors. In terms of architecture, one cannot omit the father and son Dientzenhofer (Kryštof and Kilián Ignác), as well as J.B. Mathey, J.B. Santini, T. Haffenecker, I.J. Paliardi, J.J. Wirch and others. From the sculptors in Prague, the families of Brokof, Braun, Quitteiner and others made their mark.. There were also the painters V.V. Reiner, J.L. Kracker, P. Brandl, K. Škréta and many others. The architectural forms of most Prague churches and especially  their furnishings originated in the Baroque period.
