Das Kabinett des Jan Švankmajer

A while ago I complained that the art of Jan Švankmajer wasn't easy to come by. This exhibition catalogue rectifies the situation with numerous reproductions of his collage chimaeras, photos of his "natural history cabinet" of fantastical creatures made from found objects, and stills from his short films and features.


Form Is Void recently posted an animated short, The Torchbearer, by Jan's son Václav Švankmajer, and it's a remarkable piece of work. Below are some of his paintings and collages, more of which can be found here.
