(1891 - 1945)
Franz Sedlacek was active/lived in Austria, Germany. Franz Sedlacek is known for social commentary surrealist painting, symbolism.
Described as the "world's craziest painter", Franz Sedlacek was
regarded as "the most eccentric Austrian to be internationally known
for his brushwork. Stolid Northerners from Sweden and The
Netherlands buy his paintings, which are close in spirit to the work of
such surrealists as Dali and Chirico."
Sedlacek was self taught, and began scrawling in pencil when he was a
child, "later graduated to crayon, and then to the kind of "nightmarish
oils" for which he became known. Much of his work expressed his
World War I service for which he was decorated for valor. He also
has tudored in a technical high school for women and invented "so many
gadgets that he cannot begin to remember what all of them were."
