Šimá, Josef (French painter, printmaker, and illustrator, 1891-1971)

Note: Student of the Academy of Fine Arts in Prague (1910-1914). Travelled to Spain in 1918, and settled in Paris, 1921. His paintings show the influence of surrealism, but tend toward a lyrical abstraction. Founded the group Le Grand Jeu in 1927 with René Daumal, Roger Vailland, and Gilbert-Lecomte. An interest in cosmology and poetry informed the iconography of his works.
