Born August 21, 1930 in Humpolec, Czechoslovakia. Milan Med introduced dance drawings at his first Prague exhibition in 1962. After this show, Med’s pastels, drawings, paintings, and engravings were published in American gymnastics magazines, which caused his popularity to build worldwide and ignited his art career internationally.
Large size oil paintings by Milan Med accent psychological aspects of a protagonist’s life – the intense concentration before a performance, the thrill waiting behind the scenes, the gratitude for applause, or the exhaustion just after a difficult performance.
This particular work was obtained as a gift from a gymnastics associate of the current owner, who received it directly from the artist. The subject is the artist’s daughter.
