We started this website in 2002 because we are impressed by the works of art created by the Czech painter and graphic-artist Frantisek Šimon, who gave himself  the artistic name Tavik František Šimon and is worldwide known as T.F. Šimon.
Tavik is the family name of his mother. 
T.F. Šimon ranks among the greatest artists of the first half of the 20th century. That he is also one of the best graphic artists of the world is well-known to his many admirers since the early days of the last century, especially in Czechia, France, Slovakia and USA
