Unfortunately, Marie Fialová is one of the forgotten authors today. She studied painting under Opitz, Josef Ženíšek and under Dr.Agathon Klemt. From 1888 to 1891 she studied in Munich with the painter Tina Blau Lang. She exhibited with other female authors, mostly painting flowers, old streets of Prague, still lifes and flowers. We also know line drawings from her. This life-size female nude represents a completely new dimension of the painter's work, to which she has paid special attention here and which has not yet been published anywhere.
