The genesis of the official image of Tomáš Garrigue Masaryk started immediately towards the end of 1918, on the day when the first Czechoslovak President returned to his homeland. The “hunger” for the statesman’s portraits was principally based on the fact that the visual images of TGM were primarily fixed in Czech public awareness by spiteful caricatures from the period of the Manuscripts of Dvůr Králové and Zelená Hora´s disputes and the so-called Hilsneriáda. For a number of reasons, the depiction of TGM (especially in portrait painting) was the domain for more conservative artists, starting with Masaryk´s contemporaries from the National Theatre generation. Artists professing their allegiance to the avant garde movements, applied themselves to Masaryk´s portrait rather sporadically, although with striking results.
