Jiří Jílovský – Prague Painter and Graphic Artist

Catalogue for the exhibition of works by the artist Jiří Jilovský (1884-1958) that was held at the Jewish Museum's Robert Guttmann Gallery. Jilovský is known for his ‘high’ Art Nouveau oeuvre and his meticulously executed graphic pieces of various forms, techniques, styles and motifs. His series of Old Prague views, landscape scenes and portraits are among his most popular and well-known works. Particularly popular are his innovative ex-libris, of which he made more than 120. Jilovský was also a painter and a stage designer. He painted mainly portraits and landscapes, city views and genre-based scenes, as well as flowers, animals and decorative compositions. He was mainly active in the German-speaking Jewish society which vanished, almost without a trace, during the Holocaust. The Robert Guttmann show was the first exhibition of Jilovský's work since 1927. The exhibition curator and author of the catalogue is Arno Pařík.
