This publication presents well-known as well as previously unpublished works by four important representatives of modern Czechoslovak photography during the interwar period. While František Drtikol♙s inventive nudes and the constructivist, abstract, and surrealist photographs of Jaromír Funke have enjoyed international acclaim for many decades, the first large-scale foreign exhibitions of the pioneering abstract photographer Jaroslav Rössler were not held until after 2000, and Eugen Wiškovský’s distinctive interpretations of several different avant-garde tendencies are still awaiting their full appreciation.
