Life and artwork, artwork and life. A tribute to an extraordinary personality of Czech art, painter, sculptor and illustrator Věra Nováková.

The painting and drawing work of Věra Nováková (b. 1928) has been one of the most important works in the context of Czech art for more than half a century. Věra Nováková briefly studied at the Prague Academy but was expelled after the communist coup in February 1948. In the following decades, she and her husband, the artist Pavel Brázda, worked in seclusion, without the opportunity to present their works publicly and away from the direct influence of current artistic trends.
