Description The study presents a forgotten artist – high school professor of drawing Julius Singer, providing new information on his life and artistic work while mainly attempting to shed light on the activities of this trader of Old Master paintings and antiques, a business he enthusiastically pursued between 1925 and 1939. The second part of the work describes the situation on the Prague art market during the period in which Singer established his trade and throughout his entire activities in this field, and the economic and legislative conditions influencing its growth or stagnation.
