Václav Špála

Václav Špála

Václav Špála is a phenomenon of Czech modern art. His work was both uncritically admired and condemned by the public and he remains one of the country’s artists most sought after by collectors. Although he is perceived primarily as a painter, he also worked in stage, poster and book cover design and last but not least created a series of toys and boxes for the artists’ cooperative Artěl.
