Abstract

The Work of Felix Jenewein by Jakub Deml : A Poetic Interpretation In the 1890s, the painter Felix Jenewein attracted the admiration of the young intellectuals who had founded the Modem Catholic Group (Katolická moderna) and the review New Life [Nový život] (to which the young priest and poet Jakub Deml contributed in the years 1903-1905). Written from 1927 to 1928, and published in 1929, The Work of Felix Jenewein by Deml features among the most important literary exegeses on art works ever written in Bohemia. In order to understand why, it is necessary to go back to the origins of the work and to analyze the thematic and stylistic relationships woven between Jenewein's pictorial art and Demi's writing, in particular around the motif of the danse macabre. This publication illustrates the connection between Christian pictorial and literary works and the existential feeling of the modem era.
