Ludmila Padrtová

Ludmila Padrtová | The First Lady of Czech Abstraction | 1951-2013 Works

23 January – 20 April  2014
Museum of Modern Art | Salon, Cabinet

A retrospective of an extraordinary artist who created an impressive collection of paintings and drawings in the second half of the 50s in  near seclusion   and who can be  included in a wide stream of post-war Lyrical Abstraction. Her significant efforts of that time place her, according to art historians, along with Vladimír Boudník, among the leading personalities of the beginnings of Czech Informel.  However, it soon fell into obscurity, as the artist  had finished with painting by 1961, and she either gave away or destroyed a considerable part of her works in the following years. Padrtová returned to creative arts and started to draw again fifty years later, in 2011.  She has created several hundred drawings and collages, which extraordinarily complement her early works.
