Jan Rericha - CARDAMINE

Jan Rericha is an academic painter who specialises on Landscape and Figural paintings. Content and Symbolism are pivotal to his values as a painter.  He is capable of taking a two-dimensional painting by adding a third one: the dimension of time.

Jan Rericha has an uncanny sense to get to the heart of the matter. His paintings speak to the onlooker, have realistic and true-to-life depth, colour and light.

Paintings by Jan Řeřicha form a part of private collections in Germany, Switzerland, Austria, Denmark, Japan, Spain, Singapore, the USA, Israel, the Slovak Republic, and the Czech Republic. Among those who own his paintings are directors Woody Allen and Juraj Herz, and tennis player Ivan Lendl.

In 1999 Cardamine’s paintings were bought for the White House in Washington, D.C. Also in 1999 his painting Prague Old Town Square was chosen by the Czech president Vaclav Havel as a present for the U.S. Ambassador Jennone R. Walker.  Jan Řeřicha’s core works include a collection of portraits of historical personalities (Tomáš Štítný from Štítný, Viktorin Cornel, František Palacký) held in 2004 in the depositary of the National Museum.

Since 1998 the painter signs his artwork by the artistic name CARDAMINE.
