A key personality in Czech modern art, Jan Koblasa works in diverse media, including sculpture, painting, drawing, and printmaking, and he also makes costumes for the stage and screen, writes literature, and composes music. Following the Russian occupation in 1968, he left his home nation and has spent most of his life as an emigre in Germany. Nearly expelled from the Academy of Fine Arts in Prague for presenting a nude as his final project in the 1950s, he went on to become one of the main representatives of Czech postwar art. He later became a professor of sculpture in Kiel, Germany. Mahulena Neslehova's Jan Koblasa: Grafika Prints is a companion piece to Jan Koblasa, Intaglio Prints, which was published in 2010. Taken together, these books make all of Koblasa's graphic work availabel to audiences across the world. Filled with high-quality color reproductions of selected monotypes, lithographs, woodblock prints, screen prints, and computer graphics from the mid-twentieth century to the present, this book also includes an artist's time-line, updated to 2012, an overview of exhibitions and projects, and a list of his works in collections.
