Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Czech Cubism was an avant-garde art movement of Czech proponents of Cubism, active mostly in Prague from 1910 to 1914. Members of this movement realised the epochal significance of the Cubism of Pablo Picasso and Georges Braque and attempted to extract its components for their own work in all branches of artistic creativity - sculpture, painting, applied arts and architecture. The Czech Otto Gutfreund is acknowledged, by the art critic Douglas Cooper (1911-1984), to be the author of the first Cubist sculpture Anxiety ( zkost in Czech), created in 1911 and exhibited in Paris in 1912. The most notable participants in this movement were the painters Emil Filla, Bohumil Kubi ta, Anton n Proch zka, and Josef apek, the sculptor Otto Gutfreund, the writer Karel apek, and the architects Pavel Jan k, Josef Go r, Vlastislav Hofman and Josef Chochol. Many of these artists were members of the M nes Union of Fine Arts.show more
