Description

Jaromír Funke and the Amateur Avant-Garde

On Display: May 3-August 9, 2009

Jaromír Funke (1896-1945) was one of the foremost photographers of the 1920s and 1930s in Czechoslovakia. This year the National Gallery presents the first significant exhibition of Funke's work ever mounted outside of Europe. Jaromír Funke and the Amateur Avant-Garde includes 70 works by Funke and his leading contemporaries, among them Josef Sudek (1896-1976), one of the best-known Czech photographers worldwide, and Eugen Wiškovský (1888- 1964). The exhibition places Funke's career at the center of an important, if often overlooked, history of amateur modernism that developed quickly in central Europe from the very early 1920s with the creation of a nationwide network for serious camera enthusiasts in the newly-founded Czechoslovak Republic.
