Václav Špála - Between Avant-Garde and Livelihood, exh. cat., National Gallery Prague, 2005, n.p (as Z Malé Strany)

Špála joined the Group of Fine Artists in 1911. Considered the most Fauve of his generation, his Cubo-Expressionist style is marked by the use of dynamic simple forms. In 1918 he became a co-founder of a new group of artists Tvrdošíjní (The Stubborn Ones).
