Czech Van Gogh, Emil Filla, in Prague

Fiala's exhibition in the Riding house Emil Filla (1882 – 1953) was the leader of the avant-garde movement in Prague between WWI and WWII. A professor at the University of Applied Art, he idolized Vincent van Gogh, Pierre Bonnard and Edvard Munch.

Sometimes called “Czech Van Gogh”, found his style in Cubism. However, he included Expressionism and Surrealism into his paintings, some well-known depicting struggles among animals. Those in reality reflected his anxiety in the pre-war period. He was later imprisoned in the Buchenwald concentration camp during World War II. After his release, he began painting more naturally, creating some landscapes, that would be less provocative to the communists.

You can see his retrospective in the Riding school of Prague -(Jizdarna prazského hradu) daily 10–18, until 31. 10. 2007
