(From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia)
There are not many Eastern European print makers that I like as much as I do Jan Konůpek. Others that I like are Kobliha and Hodek. Konůpek had a very unique style which was borderline eccentric. Oftentimes his images are both beautiful and grotesque at the same time. His sense of fantasy and religion are two major components that I often see in his Ex Libris prints as well as his free graphics. The images below came form an elderly collector in a remote village in the Czech Republic. He apparently has one of the largest Konůpek collections around and I am happy to be the owner of this small set of very fine prints.
