Oskar Kokoschka and the Prague Cultural Scene

Oskar Kokoschka and the Prague Cultural Scene

By Agnes Tieze

At the end of 1934, Oskar Kokoschka (1886–1980) planned to travel to Prague for ten days in order to produce a portrait of the Czechoslovakian president Tomas Garrigue Masaryk. The original plan developed into a four-year stay. The Austrian Expressionist created more than 30 oil paintings while he was there, including 15 cityscapes of Prague. For the first time a catalogue is dedicated exclusively to Kokoschka’s works produced in Czechoslovakia and studies his oeuvre within the political and artistic context of the history of the period.
