Antonín Slavíček (1870-1910)
Oil on canvas, mounted on board, 50x66,5 cm, signed lower left with initials „A. S.“, attributed on the reverse: "Ant. Slavíček „Mraky“ olej", in a high quality carved frame with an original artist`s brass name plate. „Some of the paintings by Antonín Slavíček were almost ecstatic with its phantom color 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.
