Miroslav Tichý

Miroslav Tichý

Miroslav Tichý (1926–2011) was a painter and photographer born in Kyjov, Czech Republic, where he spent most of his life. Despite his art education, he was considered an outsider because of an eccentric approach to photography that revealed his fascination for the female body. Tichý studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Prague, and his early paintings and drawings reveal the influence of Picasso, Matisse and Cézanne. After the Communist takeover of Czechoslovakia in 1948, he refused to comply to the socialist-realist aesthetics and was considered a dissident.
