The small Emil Filla exhibition (1882–1953) with the title Heracles Fights the Bull presents the painter’s graphic work from the 1930s and 1940s, namely the cycle Fights and Struggles (1937) and the album Heracles (1945) reflecting Filla’s fight against the demons of his time through the Greek mythological hero Heracles, who – in the words of poet František Halas – “chose the virtue of responsibility and sacrifice” to fight oppression against the fate.
