Catalogue Note

Drtikol (1883-1961) "is considered to be the founder of modern Czech photography...  His nude photographs taken between 1910 and 1930 were considered to be revolutionary, sensitive, and absolutely modern... Drtikol's modernity consists of successful integration of elements of Cubo-Futurism into his work; particularly to integrate them into his nude photography, without submitting himself to the prevailing modes" (Encyclopedia of Twentieth-Century Photography).
