Vytlacil's religious paintingJames Flanigan
In the Snite Museum at the University of Notre Dame there are a number of guoache paintings on paper that have religious subject matter--Crucifixion, Resurrection, etc. I understand that he was influenced in this work at the suggestion of Re. Anthony J. Lauck, C.S.C. a former director of the museum. Does anyone have any more information about this direction in his work?
Vaclav Vytlacil, 1892-1984, born in New York City, was an important and early proponent of abstract art in New York's pre-war avant garde. He studied at the Art Students League from 1913 on with Anders Zorn and John Johanson, studied in Munich and became an instructor in the 1920's at the Art Students League, working
with Reginald Marsh. Many exhibitions. Many awards. Works held by major museums around the country.
