Tavik Frantisek (T.F.) Simon (1877 - 1942) was active/lived in Czech Republic, Czechoslovakia, United States, and France.  Tavik Simon is known for Street genre, portrait and landscape paintings, drawings, and printmaking.

An influential Czech print maker, especially wood engravings, and painter, T. F. Simon studied art at the Academy of Prague.  After his studies were completed, Simon resided in both Paris and Prague. Simon became known for his city, New York, and landscape depictions in both color aquatints and color wood engravings.

He traveled extensively during his career, both throughout Europe and North America.

Basically a traditionalist in his style, Simon did much to champion the cause of Czech printmaking throughout the world.  His efforts in Prague paved the way for the following generation of artists such as Max Svabinsky, Preissig and Kotik.

Examples of Simon's wood engravings are housed in the permanent collections of the Gallery of Modern Art, Prague, and Le Musee d'Art Moderne de Paris.
