LADISLAV SALOUN BRONZE SCULPTURE AT JENNMAUR GALLERY  
     
  LADISLAV SALOUN (CZECH 1870-1946)  
 
Saloun was one of the leading sculptors in the Art Nouveau and Symbolist sculpture movement in the Czech Republic. His monumental sculpture to Jan Hus dominates Wenceslas square in Prague. Saloun's villa in Vinohrady became a hot bed for artists such as Alfons Mucha, Jakub Obrovsky and Frantisek Bilek. Saloun preferred large scale commissions. His smaller studies include "Wild Poppies" from 1905  and a set of facial studies from the same year. In 1915 Saloun's Jan Hus memorial (which had occupied nearly 15 years of his work) was unveiled.
