Art and Heritage in Central Europe
Božena Plocháňová (née Bauerová, 1929-2020) was born in Prague and grew up in the Vinohrady district. She attended the renowned Prague State Graphic School (1946-1950) and went on to illustrate many children’s books. Through her smilingly light, artistically pure drawings, Božena Plocháňová tried to bring relief to the reader from the mundane and difficult carousel of life. She perceived it encouragingly and positively, without embellishment, and she laughed at the period shortcomings of us all, including herself. She understood that with a smile on her face, mind and soul, one could survive everything in the stereotypical life in what was then Czechoslovakia.
Exhibition of her Illustrations at the Danubiana Meulensteen Art Museum in Bratislava is open util 29 May 2022.
