Lot description
Early gelatin silver print.

Eugen Wiskovsky (1888-1964) was a leading Czech avant-garde photographer and one of the most radical practitioners of Czech Constructivism. His photographs from the late 1920s and early 1930s demonstrate his affinity for the style of New Objectivity photography, which sought to explore the problems of form and structure in photographic expression. Wiskovsky was a seminal figure in the development of modern Czech photographic theory, publishing theoretical articles and photographs in the modern journal, Fotograficky obzor. After the communist regime took power, Wiskovsky devoted himself mainly to an extensive cycle of more emotional photographs.
