Frantisek Drtikol

26 03 2012

Try typing his name. Drtikol was a Czech artist/photographer. Who focused on the nude. The female. Not considered an odd obsession, I find his multiple twisting of the female form an attempt at some kind of resignation. Perhaps he sees her as an iconic figure. They are certainly arresting figures. (Groucho Marx remark here.) I would like to know how someone who has no knowledge or exposure to Christian art and symbolism would relate to these pics. Perverted perhaps. Or macabre.
