Jiří Balcar

Jiří Balcar (1929-1968) belonged to the circle of theorist Jindřich Chalupecký, at the end of the fifties he was one of the pioneers of Czech post-war abstraction and calligraphy, after returning from a several-month creative stay in the USA (1964) he turned to pop art . The monograph re-evaluates Balcar's work and shows it in its entirety for the first time; it includes both free and applied work, as its contribution to book editing, illustration and poster design is crucial. In addition to well-known works, the publication also presents many never-reproduced works that contribute to a deeper understanding of the author. The book includes selected period texts and complete bibliographies.
