Czechoslovak, 20th century, male.

Born 1930, in Ceské Velenice.


Adolf Born studied at the academy of fine arts in Prague. His paintings fall somewhere between caricature and a style of composition that is childlike yet not entirely free of tragedy. He took part in the Paris Biennale (1961) and had solo exhibitions in Prague, Berlin, Paris, Geneva, London, Moscow and Tokyo.
