This is post #5 in this mini series of Yule snow scenes, and today’s artist is T.F.Simon, a prolific painter and printmaker from Czechoslovakia who lived between 1877 and 1942. Today is the first time I’d ever heard of him! I just stumbled onto a website devoted to him, while looking for somebody else.
Amazing how this monochrome work superbly expresses the feeling of cold. Brrrrr.
This second image shows the direct influences on Simon’s printmaking technique that accrued while he travelled extensively in the East.
Here’s the huge website I dropped into, and it’s packed with Simon’s work.
