Jaroš, Petr / Forest interior
oil, cardboard, 45 × 63 cm
posthumous estate donation in 2020
Petr Jaroš painted in a realistic style, displaying a talent for depicting detail as well as a skilled use of colour; he was able to capture the essential atmosphere of a landscape. His paintings, mainly capturing scenes from the Chodsko region of West Bohemia, exude a unique sense of calm and harmony. An example is his oil painting Forest Interior (1916), which was acquired by the gallery in 2020. It is the first of Jaroš’s works in our collections.
