Article

Known in Czech as Osma and in German as Die Acht, the Eight was an artistic association at the forefront of the modern movement in Prague in the early twentieth century. It made a pivotal contribution to the development of post-impressionism, expressionism, and cubism in the Czech lands of the Habsburg Empire (Bohemia and Moravia), and first garnered attention through its exhibitions of 1907 and 1908. Bilingual in composition, the group included the artists Vincenc Beneš, Friedrich Feigl, Emil Filla, Max Horb, Otakar Kubín, Bohumil Kubišta, Willi Nowak, Emil Artur Pittermann-Longen, Antonín Procházka, and Linka Procházková.
