The renowned Czech painter and graphic artist Adriena Šimotová has died in Prague at the age of 87. Šimotová launched her career in the early 1960s to become one of the most distinguished artists on the Czech art scene during the latter half of the 20th century. Her early lyrical landscape motifs were later replaced by a single major theme - the human body. Her works included painting, textile collage, graphic art, drawing, frottage, installation and pigment drawing for which she won numerous foreign and Czech awards. Her works can be found in Tokyo, Paris or Stockholm.
