The painter Viera Hložníková was born in Znojmo in 1920 and attended the school of applied art in Brno before studying, from 1937 to 1942, at Prague's academy of applied art under Professors Kysela and Novák. Following graduation Viera Hložníková, now married to Slovak artist Vincent Hložník, moved with her husband to Turčiansky sv. Martin in Slovakia. Here she began her career by illustrating books for the Slovak cultural institution Matica slovenská. The focus of her oeuvre, however, was monumental work such as mosaics and, above all, stained-glass windows. The latter grace an impressive number of churches, including at Dolný Hričov and Horný Smokovec. These works are remarkable in their perfection of draughstmanship, tonal richness and refinement. In recent years the artist has been working in graphics - colour linocuts in particular - on sacred motifs, constantly adding to a series that already numbers more than two hundred prints.
