 Czeck art Gallery. Collection of czeck Artists paintings. Ivan Komárek
Homage to mannerism Komárek’s Mannerist series can be traced back to several key aspects his previous work, in which he already used a variety of Mannerist elements — from extravagant formalism and expressively grotesque depiction of the human figure to omnipotent eroticism.
It was printed reproductions of Mannerist paintings rather than the originals which provided the Models for Komárek’s interpretations; as a result, the narration of these works was a mediated one, creating space for Komárek to establish a dominant and masterful artistic presence in each of his works.
This confusion of techniques is in itself typical of the Mannerist approach, in addition to the fact that Komárek often feels the urge to boldly transform works of Mannerist art.

Finally, in 1600, Goltzius gave up engraving altogether and devoted the last years of his life exclusively to drawing and, more significantly, to painting, a medium in which he had previously shown little interest.
