Rare and curious objects, Stepan's portrait photo collages were inspired by Dada and Surrealism. By adding decals, paper objects and string to the images the artist gives new meaning and humor to the rather conventional cabinet portraits of the late 19th century. The wife of Bohumil Stepan, Hana Stepan worked closely with him up until his death. She is an illustrative artist in her own right and has worked on many animated films.
