Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history
The current show at the Václav Špála Gallery, "Pictures From the History of Czech Photography," is a subjective selection of Czech Modernist and contemporary photography from the collection of the financial group's subsidiary PPF Art, which has operated this prominent gallery on Národní třída since the spring of 2010.
The curator, Josef Moucha, himself a photographer, picked 20 artists held in the PPF corporate collection: Ladislav Emil Berka, František Drtikol, Jaromír Funke, Alexandr Hackenschmied, Václav Chochola, Václav Jirásek, Běla Kolářová, Jan Lauschmann, Jan Lukas, Emila Medková, Adolf Novák, Ivan Pinkava, Karel Plicka, Jaroslav Rössler, Drahomír Josef Růžička, Adolf Schneeberger, Jan Svoboda, Bohumil Šťastný, Karel Valter and Peter Župník. Each of the artists is represented by two to five images. Most of them are household names to photography aficionados, but there are several lesser-known photographers who deserve to be more widely known.
