Painting is silent poetry, and poetry is painting that speaks. Simonides

Jindrich Ulrich





''Jindřich (Henry) Ulrich is said to be the last living Middle Ages miniaturist. He paints his little oil paintings in a style that may resemble the long forgotten techniques indeed. Even his motifs almost entirely communicate with history. Yet they are often not purely historical, JU employs his unique fantasy to create often grotesque, yet calm and contemplative images. It is impossible to show the real beauty of these little images on a photo, but it's better than nothing.

J. Ulrich lives and works in Prague. He does not have any official web pages; this set is the closest to what can be described as his official presentation. Being his friend I'm helping him with presenting his work to the world in this way. ''
