Graphic art of Czechoslovakia (1922)

HERE is a collection of Czech graphic art from 1922. The image is by FrantiĊĦek Kobliha (1877-1962), a Czech illustrator and wood-engraver. He was born into a family of small shopkeepers and was educated in Prague at the school of applied arts and Academy of Fine Arts. After university he adopted printmaking, in particular wood engraving, so he could work on black and white tonal variations. More on him HERE.
