This article focusses on the interior decoration of the library of Broumov monastery, realized in 1738 and 1793. The interpretation of the iconological indication uses the methodological possibilities of classical iconography and comparison. For this reason, the newly discovered fresco decoration of the library of Kladruby (attributed to Cosmas Damian Asam) has been used to reconstruct principle problems that baroque painters had to handle with when fulfilling their fresco commissions. The final result of the interpretation of Broumov shows the notable cultural changes, expressed in the two phases of the artistic designs – traditionally „baroque“ in the 1730ies, clearly enlighted in the 1790ies. The nowadays as homogeneous regarded ensemble therefore demonstrates a multiple capacity to express different iconological strategies, due to the targets of artists and (monastic) commissioners.
