Mikuláš Galanda was the co-author of the first manifesto of Slovak Modernism. He also achieved distinctive results in drawing, graphics and brought Slovak fine art in step with Europe in the 1930s.

Galanda emphasised the precision of line, coupled with tasteful lyricism and intimacy. Many of his formally simple pictures of madonnas, nudes, brigands and other modest motifs became iconic masterpieces. Galanda's small view of the High Tatras village Ždiar shows his ability to easily create a winsome, almost fairy tale quality.
