The exhibition catalogue reveals an unknown side of one of the best known Czech photographers. Portraits, ladscapes and scenes from the old town of Prague represent the artist´s early period, marked by the close connections between photography and symbolism. By highlighting the period between 1901 and 1914, when photography went hand in hand with painting, it wishes to display the work of a photographer who can be regarded as a pronounced pictorialist.
The publication was issued by the Kant publishing house in cooperation with the Museum of Decorative Arts in Prague and Neumann Foundation, Gingins (Switzerland), to accompany the exhibition held at the Neumann Foundation in 1999 and in the Museum of Decorative Arts in Prague, March – June, 2000.
