Max Bohac (?): Lovers - Nudes in Landscape

Auction Vltavin, Prague, CZ has just listed this early 20th century work by Max Bohac (?), a Czech artist who was active during the first half of the 20th century, titled Lovers. Unfortunately, I have found scant biographic information on him to pass along. The activity depicted in the painting could have been a recruiting poster for that pre-World War II Czech government program encouraging young people to buy land before the Germans bought it all up or just marched in and took it. I believe the program was called: "Get lots while you're young." I know, I'm bad. That's an old Benny Hill joke. Enjoy.
