Jiri Anderle is a Czechoslovakian painter and graphic artist best known for his delicate and ghostly etchings of the human form. Working in an aesthetic that recalls the sketches of Leonardo da Vinci, Anderle depicts human existence and mortality with works that appear to be medical drawings from some eccentric 18th-century surgeon. Born on September 14, 1936 in Pavlíkov, Czechoslovakia, he studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Prague. With his rigorous formal training, he was able to apply Older Master techniques to his contemporary work and achieve a high level of anatomical realism. Today, his works are in the collections of The Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Uffizi Gallery in Florence, the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam, the Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris, and the Albertina in Vienna, among others. Anderle lives and works in Prague, Czech Republic.
