Baroque concepts, designs and descriptions of wall paintings in Jesuit churches and colleges of the Czech Jesuit province
Languages of publication
The typical conceptualisation of baroque art was evident even in the art of the Jesuit order. The most famous and first theologically coherent program of temple decoration was realized in the mother church of Il Gesù in Rome. The decoration programs of other order churches, e.g. the first program of the St. Ignatius church in Prague's New Town were designed also equally consistently. The pre-phase of creating wall paintings in Jesuit buildings wasn’t different from other sacral or profane realizations. The suitable theme, iconographic-iconological concept, was generally created by the sponsor or his artistic advisors. The specific source of the Jesuit order is the annual reports, or Litterae annuae. In them, although usually appear only information about completing the painting by "skilled brush", or that the work was made by an artist, but despite of this, the annual report may be the only source of information on works already extinct.
