Jarmila Mařanová – Kafka and Prague

Catalogue for the exhibition at the Jewish Museum's Robert Guttmann Gallery. Jarmila Mařanová (b. 1922) studied at the School of Applied Arts in Prague and since 1962 has focused on graphic art. In 1963–67 she made a number of monotypes and prints based on motifs from the novels and short stories of Franz Kafka. In 2006 she donated a large set of these works to the Jewish Museum. A series of drawings and prints based on Prague motifs also dates from this time. These works are among her best and were featured in the exhibition Kafka and Prague. Jarmila Mařanová also made a number of prints based on biblical motifs, as well as a series of lithographs for John Amos Comenius’ work The Labyrinth of the World and the Paradise of the Heart. In 1976 she emigrated to the USA where she continued her artwork. In 1984 she received awards from leading American art associations for her illustrations of works by Kafka. She is currently living in Idaho in the north west of the United States. Her work is represented in a number of European, American and Israeli collections.
