Jaroš, Petr / Forest interior

1916

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.


JAROŠ PETR

(1859–1929) was a student of Hugo Illik, a landscape painter who worked in a Romantic idiom. After completing his studies in Prague and working as a painter at the Vienna State Opera, he also studied under Jan Václav Kautský. He then continued studying in Munich and Dresden, before working as a scenographer and painter at the National Theatre in Brno and the city’s Janáček Theatre. He then moved to Prague, where he worked at the Pištěk Theatre. Although he specialized in theatrical art, he also produced his own canvases. An example is Spring Landscape near Blansko, Moravia, which won acclaim when he displayed it at the Prague Jubilee Exhibition in 1891. Jaroš’s work frequently appears at auctions, where it attracts substantial interest from collectors.
