Josef Váchal was an extremely gifted artist. He was influenced by expressionism and other trends, already in his youth he was striving for his own artistic style. His top graphic works are books that he himself wrote, illustrated and printed and bound in only a few copies. Testimonies of experts present Váchal in its complexity and elusiveness. They reveal the fascinating breadth and depth of his idiosyncratic artistic and literary work, in which he always deliberately avoided the dictates of political demand.
