George Kars was a distinguished Czech painter and lithographer, who lived and worked in France. He was born in 1880, studied at the Munich Academy of Fine Arts. During the 1920s and 1930s, he exhibited in numerous European cities. After seizing France by the Nazis, he moved to Lyon for a brief period of time – for he had to leave the latter city soon as well, switching to Switzerland where he, however, tragically died in February 1945. Work by Jiří Kars is scattered throughout private and public collections both in the Czech Republic and abroad. After the war, in 1965, small exhibition of Kars’ works was organized in the Vincenc Kramář Gallery in Prague. Nudes executed by Kars in the medium of drawing rank to highly sought-after collector’s items.
