About This Image

A beautiful bromoil print.

Jaroslav Krupka was born in 1884 and died shortly after WWII in 1947. He trained as an engineer and was an amateur who worked primarily in the bromoil process and was active in the 1920-30s. He displayed his work in many of the leading salons in America, France, Belgium, Spain, Sweden, Czechoslovakia and other European venues. He was even a salon judge himself.

Krupka lived in Prague during his active period. He illustrated his wife's book, "Dvanáct Mesícku" in 1937. He is listed in Auer & Auer and in the George Eastman House databases. Also see: Mlcoch and Scheufler, Cesky Pictorialismus, 1895-1928, p.30-31 for biographical information on Krupka and four other of his photographs. The J. Paul Getty Museum and the George Eastman House have examples of his work in their collections.

Shipping and insurance costs will be added to the price and must be paid for by the buyer. Pennsylvania buyers must pay appropriate local sales tax. International clients are responsible for their VAT and other custom's oriented charges.
