Book Description Hardcover. Condition: New. Dust Jacket Condition: New. 1st Edition. Folio, cloth, 588pp., illustrated throughout, in Englsh language. The first comprehensive monograph on Jindrķch tyrskż, one of the most important players in the Czech avant-garde. tyrskż (1899-1942) was a multi-talented genius; primarily a painter and photographer, he was also a writer and editor. Precocious, he began executing remarkable, original artwork in his teens and soon connected with soulmates Karel Teige, the painter Toyen, and the poet Vitezslav Nezval who would form the nexus of the Czech avant-garde. tyrsky took part in the Devětsil movement, developed with Toyen "artificialism" (an quasi-surrealist original take prefiguring postwar tachism). He produced shockingly erotic photomontages, collages and publications; he was a major surrealist painter, and finally a force of inner resistance in the German occupation. This book is the first to explore his contribution in great depth, and is the unparalleled resource for understanding or cataloguing his oeuvre and understanding the Czech avant-garde and surrealist movements.
