Josef Blecha's caricatures are unusual renditions of composers whose works have been heard over the 60-year history of the Smetana Festival. The selection of portraits is a small example from the collection of music legends created for the Aria boutique hotels in Prague and Budapest, the main theme of which is music in its various forms. Josef Blecha in simple and elegant lines and collage looks for purity of expression in the portrayed personality and their surrounding world, which approximates to the time and context of their artistic creation.
