Ivan Ouhel

This member of the 12:15, Pozdě ale přece (12:15, Better Late Than Never) group and Umělecká beseda (Artistic Forum) is one of the main Czech representatives of lyrical abstraction. However, his paintings are not purely abstract but refer to real things. His most frequent subject is landscape in which sometimes the trace of a figure appears. Ouhel is a laureate of Cena 17. listopadu (17 November Award), given to students of the Academy of Fine Arts in Prague.
