Jan Matulka (7 November 1890 - 25 June 1972) was a Czech-American modern artist originally from Bohemia. Matulka's style would range from Abstract expressionism to landscapes, sometimes in the same day. Matulka was born on November 7, 1890 in Vlachovo B ez, Bohemia, then part of Austria-Hungary and now part of Czech Republic. In 1907 Jan, his parents Maria and John, and his five younger sisters moved to The Bronx. Soon after John separated from Jan's mother and left the family alone and with little money. In 1908 Jan Matulka began studying at the National Academy of Design in New York City. Upon graduation in 1917 Matulka met Ludmila "L da" Jirou kov who would on May 1, 1918 become his wife. L da Matulka worked for the New York Public Library as the head of the Czechoslovak literature section and helped connect her husband to the larger cultural community.show more
