Biography

Czechoslovakian sculptor Antonín Odehnal began study in 1892 at the Bechyně professional ceramic school, graduating in 1895. Because of his impoverished condition, and because of his considerable talent, he was supported by his hometown Svratka on nutrition studies. From 1902-09 Odehnal studied at the School of Applied Arts in Praha.

After World War I Odehnal designed and created several memorials to the Fallen, such as the one in Trebic (destroyed in World War II), reliefs in Praha XIX, and also a memorial in Svratka, which the author donated to his hometown. For almost 20 years Odehnal did designs for coins and medals, and was an occasional painter.
