Antonín Slavíček (1870-1910)
Oil, canvas, board, 50x66,5 cm, marked lower left by initials „A. S.“, on the reverse "Ant. Slavíček „Mraky“ olej", in a carved frame with original brass name plate. „Some of the paintings by Antonín Slavíček were almost ecstatic in its phantom colored spots, others monochromatic and strangely charming. Certain not rigidity, but ceremony and magnificence, are their determining element. This painting belongs to them, is remarkable in the form of painting texture, heroic in its expression and at the same time emotionally disturbing, painted apparently in a great mental movement of alla prima and in almost dramatic thrill.“ Condition A. With expert opinion by PhDr. Mgr. Michael Zachař. Consulted with prof. Prahl and Dr. Leubner.
