"Transformations of Czech visual culture of the interwar period are often connected with activities of Jaromir Funke, Josef Sudek and Ladislav Sutnar. Of no less importance was their generational peer, co-worker and friend Josef Ehm (1909-1989). In the years 1934-1946 he was a teacher at the State School of Graphic Art in Prague, where in 1935 he participated in preparation of the legendary book Photography Sees Surface. His artistic production is renowned for a unique combination of avant-garde creative methods and technical brilliance."--Galerie Josefa Sudka
Ehm's work is the subject of an exhibition currently on view at Galerie Josefa Sudka in Prague. A scarce item from a beautifully produced series.

Slight wear to edges of some plates; diagonal surface creases, extending less than 1/8" from corners of several plates; two 1" tears to edges of paper portfolio.
