Edouard Vysekal (1890-1939)
Edouard Vysekal was born in Kutna Hora, Czechoslovakia, on March 17, 1890, into a family of artists. Edouard Vysekal began his art studies in Prague and, after joining his father in St Paul, MN in 1907, studied at the AIC under Vanderpoel and later with Stanton MacDonald-Wright, Harry M. Walcott, and Morgan Russell.
He taught at the Art Institute from 1912-14 and married one of his pupils, Luvena Buchanan. In 1914 the couple came west to execute a mural commission in the Barbara Worth Hotel in El Centro, CA. Opting to remain in California, he established a studio home in the Hollywood Hills.
Edouard Vysekal taught in Los Angeles at the Art Students League and from 1922-39 at Otis Art Institute. Vysekal’s bold, modern figure studies won many awards in southern California before his death in Los Angeles on December 2, 1939.
