The older period of his works had a tendency to figural decorations under the influence of Preiler. The later works tended to simplicity and simplicity. He fulfilled the program of art revival in the spirit of domestic tradition. He was a cottageman in Zamachy himself. He created poetic landscapes and figural genre scenes from rural life, influenced by Art Nouveau decorativism and folk art (Grim Reaper). In the last period of the prematurely closed work he achieved color temperance and plastic expressiveness in monumental panoramic landscapes around Dobris (Krajina u Plese, Senecnice). His collaboration as a creator of curtains and backdrops - a set design with amateur clubs was also extensive. He exhibited with the Umelecka Beseda in Prague at the member exhibition of 1925 and had 28 works. In September 1928 there was a posthumous exhibition of his works in the Art Beseda in Ales Hall (156 works). Another exhibition was in the Pos Gallery in Prague.
