The art of Jindrich Pilecek, 1944–2002

Knight of Autumn (1971).

A pair of intaglio prints by a Czech illustrator and ex libris artist whose work helped sustain that strand of Surrealism which has never quite expired in Eastern Europe. These are from a larger selection of prints found here, and the tip comes via the ~Wunderkammer~.

Mirrors II (1986).

    The fragility of the first image reminds me current situation, as if a blast of wind could make us disappear

    pe-jota captures my sensibility – personally, and socially, the fragility of life implicit in ‘Knight of Autumn’ feels ever so apt.
    Thanks Mr Coulthart for this excellent site – refreshes often:))
