While there is unfortunately no Franz Sedlacek website that I can direct you to, all images were found in half a dozen different places, there is a brief biography on the artist at Wikipedia, read it here.

Also, if anyone knows where I might find the top painting "Moulage Studio" and the third artwork "Fanciful Ink Drawing II" at a higher resolution, please share in the comments, thanks!

Stunning. Some pieces remid me of the genious of Alfred Kubin, but this guy was completely unknown to me.

I've never seen Sedalcek's work before, but it immediately reminded me of Erol Otus (the early D&D illustrator).
I wonder if there's any connection there (perhaps Otus saw some of Sedalcek's work and was inspired), or if it's just a coincidence.
