The Women-Plant and other Animals









Karel Teige (December 13, 1900 – October 1, 1951), a leader of the Czech surrealism in the 1920s, was graphic artist, photographer, typographer and, not least, theoretician of avant-garde aesthetics. In 1948, after coming the Soviet army, Teige was silenced by the government, his papers were destroyed, and his published work was suppressed for decades.
His collages are always permeated with a strong sexual allure, through the remarkable adoption in key erotic of the anthropomorphic landscape of late Renaissance.
