Biography Jan Mudroch
Ján Mudroch (1909-1968) was
the first principal of the Academy of Fine Arts in Bratislava. He was a
co-founder of a group that published surrealist magazines and
anthologies. In his works, he mainly focused on still life paintings and
often made use of metaphors and symbols.
During the war period he
created works that strongly expressed the misery. He turned towards
Poetic Realism after the Second World War. He was awarded the title of
'Artist of Outstanding Merit' of Slovakia in 1963 and posthumously the
title of 'National Artist' of Slovakia in 1968. (tmi)
