Unique David Friedmann´s Collection
Muzeum in Falkenau, Zámecká Str. 2
There is placed a unique collection of paintings of graphic artist David Friedmann, a native of Ostrava, who worked here. He came here after the war. Already in Ostrava he painted mostly miners and the same theme also impressed him here. He was also known a newspaper cartoonist. Later he emigrated with his new family (the first wife and children died in a concentration camp) – his wife and daughter Miriam to New York. During the emigration he changed a name a little bit. From David Friedmann was David Friedman (with only one “n”). Therefore you may encounter both versions of his name. If you are confused of which here’s the explanation – if we are writing or speaking about him in connection with his activities in exile in the U.S., we write it with two “n”, only after emigrating with one “n”.
David Friedmann always pictured himself as ´the man with glasses´.
