The course deals with the theme of Biedermeier in Czech culture, in which this phenomenon of the 19th century culture and arts started to be reflected more systematically as late as in the 1990's. The course studies Biedermeier as a specific manifestation of the first half of the 19th century in its relation to the bourgeois society and confronts artworks of various artistic kinds, as well as from the sphere of applied art. It deals with the functional and value status of cultural units, and highlights some motifs being traditionally connected with Biedermeier (idyllism, family life) to analyze them in relation to further period tendencies. - historical-social characteristics of the period between the Congress of Vienna and 1848 - restoration and modernizing process - national emancipation process in Europe and in the Czech lands - art and culture in the first half of the 19th century - rise of the bourgeois society - the term "Biedermeier", its origin and content - Biedermeier: art movement or lifestyle? - characteristics of artistic manifestations of Biedermeier - Biedermeier and romanticism - Biedermeier and classicism - the high and the low in Biedermeier - Biedermeier idyllism - visual arts of Biedermeier - literature of Biedermeier in stylistic syncretism of Czech literature in the first half of the 19th century - Czech applied art of Biedermeier
