A scarce portfolio of 12 high quality copy prints on resin coated paper from this important Czech Modernist. Though he died in 1961, Drtikol stopped photographing in 1935. An adherent of Theosophy, Drtikol's work forms a fascinating synthesis of 19th century Symbolism, Modernist Abstraction, and Art Deco whimsy. These images range in date from 1912 to 1934 (original medium listed in parentheses)
