Additional event of the Festival
Tuesday, 5 pm
Gallery of Fine Arts in Ostrava, Print Art Collection

The life and work of painter František Podešva are connected with the magical region around Soláň, where he lived from the late 1930s. He returned to the region of his ancestors after his art studies in Prague, his stay at František Kupka’s studio in Paris, and his travels and activities abroad. The charming Soláň, the adjacent landscape and especially the difficult but pure life became the main subject of his paintings and print sheets, which are full of characteristic earthy Wallachian lyricism.


The duration of the exhibition is 7/6–3/7
