In memoriam Bedrich Housa 1926-2020

It was only a few months ago that Bedrich Housa was honoured by the Czech Republic Post with a stamp featuring his portrait (which you can find HERE). But just after his 94th birthday, Bedrich Housa passed away on 7 May 2020.

Active from the late 1940s, Housa was one of the master engravers of Czechoslovakia (and later the Czech Republic as well). Here are a few randomly chosen engravings of his.

You will find Bedrich Housa's biography HERE.


  1. Sad news. Another of the brilliant classic engravers gone.
