Emil Filla (1882-1953)

The beginnings of modern Czech art and painting, particularly Cubism, are inextricably linked with the name Emil Filla.  After training under Franz Thiele and Vlaho Bukovac at the Prague Fine Arts Academy, he traveled extensively before joining other young artists, among them Procházka and Kubín, to found the group Osma (the Group of Eight) in 1907.  The group was oriented toward both the Paris Fauves and the German movement Die Brücke.(showing 500 of 2738 characters).
