HERCIK, Josef

BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

Quotes from a 1997 interview with Merkur Revue:

Answering a question on his recollections of the job of the engraving of Titian's Apollo Punishing Marsyas, Herčík said: "(Yes, it was my idea.) Now that I look back, however, I am not very satisfied with the result. (...)". Asked which of his works he liked best and thought were printed to his satisfaction, he replied: "I would especially name Picasso's self-portrait and then Preisler's 'Black Lake', both stamps were issued in the  'Art' series (1972 and 1968). There are, however, also some more."
