Emil Filla (April 4, 1882 - October 7, 1953), a Czech painter, was a leader of the Avant-Garde in Prague between World War I and World War II and was an early Cubist painter. He was born in Chropyn, Moravia, and spent his childhood in Brno, but later moved to Prague. Beginning in 1903, he studied at the Akademie v tvarn ch um n (Prague Academy), but he left the school in 1906. He was a member of the group Osma (The Eight) in 1907-1908, which had commonalities with the Fauves and also had direct ties to the German Expressionist group Die Br cke. Important works by Filla from this period include Reader of Dostoevsky (1907) and Chess Players (1908). In 1909, he became a member of the M nes Union of Fine Arts. Beginning in 1910 he painted primarily in a Cubist style, strongly influenced by Picasso and Braque, and produced works such as Salome (1911) and Bathers (1912). He also began to paint many still lifes around that time.
