Josef Čapek's Accordion-player, 1913

Painting by Josef Čapek, Czech, born in 1887. Most well known for cubist works, but also an acknowledged poet and writer. He was a vocal critic of National Socialism, and was imprisoned in the Bergen-Belsen concentration camp, where he died in 1945.


  1. Josef Čapek was a Czech, not Hungarian.
    Otherwise, the website is good and informative.
