Cyril Bouda was important not only for his extensive oeuvre of paintings and prints, but also for his work as an art instructor. In 1923 he underwent training under František Kysela at the School of Applied Arts in Prague, transferring to Prague’s Academy of Fine Arts to graduate as a student of Max Švabinský. He was a professor at Charles University’s Faculty of Education in 1946–1972, where he initially taught fine graphic art (drypoint, color etching, lithography) and painting. Throughout his life he illustrated books, especially fairy tales, Czech legends, humorous and historical novels.
