Czech Collage Artist Karel Teige

Collage rotogravure, 1942. Collection: The National Museum of Literature, Prague, Czechoslovakia.

Some of you may know I do collage work now and again so when I happened on this lovely collage by Karel Teige I just had to share it with you.

Karel was a critic and organizer of events on the Czech art scene of the 1920s, he was also a leading figure of the avant-garde group Devetsil and a member of the Prague Surrealists. Between 1934 and his premature death in 1951, he privately produced nearly 400 collages with the female nude being a main theme in his work.

Quite interesting to me. Hope you enjoy!
