Emil Orlik – A Fin-de-Siècle Artist
As a German-Bohemian painter, draughtsman and graphic artist, Emil Orlik (1870–1932) belonged to that generation of artists who developed their own visual language between realism and Jugendstil in the period around 1900. Prague, Munich, Vienna and Berlin were Orlik’s main points of reference in his life and work. He also spent a lot of time travelling: in Europe, but also in East Asia and the USA.
Impressions of foreign countries, particularly Japan, are reflected spectacularly in his artistic oeuvre. The travelling artist’s drawings, sketches, prints and paintings in the collection of the Kunstforum Ostdeutsche Galerie in Regensburg are now available to be rediscovered.
