Pressig, Vojtech: Czechoslovaks! Join Our Free Colors!


Size: 36×25

Categories: , ,


Pressig’s beautiful Checkoslovaks! Join Our Free Colors! shows swirling flags as jubliant Czech soldiers twirling their helmets atop their bayonets celebrate their independence from the Austro-Hungarian rule. The combination of the vibrant color of the flags contrasted with the dark silhouettes of the soldiers is especially striking, not surprising as Pressig was an acclaimed artist. He was the Director of the Wentworth Institute, an art school. Scarce. 36×25 near mint, conservation backed.
