Kolár was both a visual artist and a writer, and in these works he pays homage to nineteenth-century French poet Charles Baudelaire whose portrait recurs in all of them. Kolár (pronounced to sound like ‘collage’) developed various different ways of combining imagery; he called this technique of interlacing vertical strips of two different images ‘prollage’. In each case the reproduced painting interwoven with the poet’s portrait reminded Kolár of a particular line from Baudelaire’s collection of poems ‘The Flowers of Evil’, from which the titles are borrowed.
