Karel Bezděkovský
* 13.10.1911 Havlíčkův Brod (Česká republika).

 

He studied at the Odborná škola keramická, Bechyně, the UPS. He studied  Academy of Arts, Architecture and Design (UMPRUM) in Prague from 1933 to 1938, and after graduation at the AVU, Akademie výtvarných umění, Praha under T.F. Šimon. Granddaughter Lenka Kamenikova: "He was accepted straight away into the second year of that course. It would appear that my grandfather studied under Professor Šimon for the academic year from 1938 to 1939. He was enrolled for the following year starting September 1939 but couldn't start because of the occupation and closure of the university by the Germans. I have not been able to find out whether he was one of the private students that Professor Šimon continued to teach in his private studio following the closure of the university. I understand that his only job was as an art teacher in a school in Karlovy Vary. I understand that he had one or two exhibitions but I am not sure where. My grandfather always spoke so fondly about T F Simon".

Exhibitions:
Zlin, 1942 and 1943.
Kolin, 1943.
Literature: Slovník českých a slovenských výtvarných umělců 1950-1997.
Study travel to Italy in 1937.
