Founded in 1920, the State School of Graphic Arts in Prague always paid due attention to photography. From 1935, courses in the field were taught by Jaromír Funke, as well as Josef Ehm and the school’s director Ladislav Sutnar. Instruction followed Functionalist principles, with emphasis on the photograph’s utilitarian function and on advertisement. The small-scale exhibition commemorates the students Věra Vaníčková, Milada Helfertová, Roberta Boučková, Jaroslava Hatláková and, with several photographic works, Věra Gabrielová (reportage, advertisement) and Olga Jílovská (reportage, studies themed Solid Objects in Space). Between 1920 and 1939 alone, more that seventy female students were enrolled in the school.
