Although often considered a purely Moravian painter, Joža Úprka had strong ties to Prague, Munich and even Paris. He lived and studied in these cities of art, and he made good use of his experience after he returned to Moravia. His paintings featuring folk and folklore themes garnered attention in Paris, where they were exhibited as part of the Salon of French Artists in 1894.
