Rudolf Bruner-Dvořák (1864-1921) was the court-photographer of Franz Ferdinand, and a pioneer in photographic reporting for magazines. His photographs show the heir to the throne Franz Ferdinand and Emperor Franz Joseph manoeuvring, on hunting excursions, visiting Bohemia or on recreational vacations in St. Moritz. The photographs come from Pavel Scheufler’s, a Czech historian of photography, substantial collection. His photo archive encompasses over 30 000 photo positives and negatives from the time of the Habsburg monarchy.
The frames for the exhibition must be available on site. The exhibition can also be shown in a reduced version.
The exhibition, created by Pavel Scheufler and the Cultural Manager for the Czech Lands, was shown in the Sudeten German House in Munich from June 13th to June 25th, 2014.
