Otto Gutfreund (Czech 1889-1927)

Gutfreund is a major Cubist sculptor and a leading representative of Czech Cubism, during 1912-1916 the gate to the poetics of avant-garde art in Central Europe. After his Cubist period (1911-1919) his 'Civilism' projects, many of them state commissioned, celebrated the citizen of newly founded Czechoslovakia. In 1927, the year of his death, Gutfreund returned to modern forms and reached the border to abstract sculpture.
