Among this year’s additions to the collections of the National Museum – Czech Museum of Music, there is a large set of documents relating to four generations of the Suk family: the schoolmaster Josef Suk (1827–1913), the composer Josef Suk (1874– 1935), the agricultural engineer Josef Suk (1901–1951), and the violin virtuoso Josef Suk (1929–2011). The acquired material contains personal documents, books, photographs, musical manuscripts, trophies, objects that have passed through Suk’s hands, and above all, a very valuable, extensive collection of correspondence written for the most part by representatives of music and the visual arts of the 20th century from this country and from around the world. The article describes in detail the letters of the Dvořák family that have been preserved as originals.
