Špála, Václav (Czech painter, 1885-1946)

Note: Czech modernist painter whose work shows a synthesis of fauvism, expressionism, futurism, and orphism. Studied privately with the painter Ferdinand Engelmüller, before enrolling at the Prague Academy of Fine Arts in 1903. He left the Academy without completing his studies, later joining the Mánes Association of Plastic Artists in 1909. In 1911 he left Mánes to join the Group of Plastic Artists, but returned in 1912. He participated in the first exhibition of the Stiffnecked group in 1918, and collaborated with the Artěl Cooperative in the 1920s. By 1924 all cubist elements had fallen out of his work, and he concentrated on bohemian landscapes, portraits, and by the 1930s, many floral still lifes.
