This article deals with a letter never before published in full that written by Karel Ditrich (1913–?), a lesser-known organiser of exhibition life in Brno and a collector of Czech modern art. In early 1945 Ditrich wrote a letter to Antonín Procházka (1882–1945) in which he expressed his admiration for the artist's body of work, which strongly appealed to him as a collector, and where above all he attempted to put forth his own distinctive interpretation of individual stages in Procházka's artistic development. This letter, along with other surviving sources, represents an important starting point for identifying at least a portion of 32 paintings by Antonín Procházka that were in Ditrich's collection of art.
