Mountain landscape, oil painting by Přemysl Janíček 1958
Academic painter Přemysl Janíček dedicated himself to painting and graphics. He studied at the Academy of Arts, Architecture and Design in Prague in 1945–49 under the guidance of Professor Jan Bauch. He was a member of the Hollar Artists Association.
Přemysl Janíček was born in Slavkov u Brna and died in Prague. He belonged to a powerful interwar generation of modern Czech artists. In his work, especially in his characteristic lives, one can observe the influence of his teacher, Jan Bauch, especially of his dynamically wavy, rich and pasty brushes. Přemysl Janíček shared with his generation the influence of fading expressionism and cubism. His life has its roots in the Czech artistic tradition, the material, sensual, strong contours and legible colors evoke haptic perceptions.
His work is represented in galleries in the Czech Republic, in private collections in the USA, Canada, Brazil, Germany, Austria and the collections in the Vatican.
