Obrovský favored women's figures in his paintings, and often sculpted figures of athletes. He designed early stamps of the new Republic of Czechoslovakia: the lion escaping from its chains (28 October 1919) and the allegory of economy (1920). In 1932 he won a bronze medal for Czechoslovakia in the art competitions of the Olympics games for his "Odysseus" (see Art competitions at the 1932 Summer Olympics). His daughter Jana Obrovská (1930 1987) became a noted Czech composer. Add a map to your own listings.
