Josef Lada

Josef Lada was a Czech painter, illustrator, and writer. He is best known for his illustrations of the works of Jaroslav Hašek, particularly The Good Soldier Švejk. He was born in Hrusice, Bohemia in 1887 and died in Prague in 1957. His style was heavily influenced by the folk art of his native region and he often used bright colors and simple shapes to create his works. He also wrote several books about his life and work, including My Life as an Artist (1951). His work has been widely exhibited throughout Europe and is held in many public collections.
