Milos Alexander Bazovsky

Miloš Alexander Bazovsky was born on January 11, 1899 in Turany nad Váhom, Slovakia. Over the course of his life, Miloš has produced countless paintings that could fill any viewer with wonder and mystery. His journey with art began in 1919 when he began his studies at the Academy of Fine Arts in Prague. Until 1924 he studied at the Academy. Upon concluding his studies, Bazovsky returned to Turany where he painted landscapes of the lush scenery. However, as time went on, his realistic paintings eventuality morphed into a more abstract picture. Instead of focusing on realism, Bazovsky began to portray more emotional works. He painted the people and landscape of Slovakia with feeling, even the loss of war appearing in a few of his works of the time. From 1944 to 1946, Alexander was not producing any artworks, but this was do to sickness. After this blank space in his life, Miloš once again found brilliance in the Slovak countryside, and took up painting for the second time.Once again he drew piece after piece, using many tools including a pencil, pastel chalk, Indian ink, and even charcoal. His still lifes were his focus now, painting even the simplest of things to make them appear mysterious, which is what I appreciate most about his work.The pieces fill me with a certain wonder and curiosity, the need to know more about the origins of each painting and what exactly Bazovsky was thinking when he made it. The picture of an expressionless figure with a dark shape that are houses or hills looming in the background forces you to really think about what Alexander is trying to say. M.A. Bazovsky drew of the balance between man and nature in a the Slovakian countryside with his own styles and ideas until his passing on December 15th, 1968. Buried in Trenčín, Miloš Alexander Bazovsky’s works have been displayed in many exhibitions and can call many private collections there home.
