Through all his life Č. Znamierovskis remained true to his realistic and maybe slightly ascetic style of painting and the genre of landscape. After the war he painted portraits, too. He was considered as a great master of this job and received serious orders. However, the most important inspirer of his creation was nature. As most of the artists he particularly liked “the landscape season”, i.e. the early spring and the golden autumn. He was a painter of rare diligence and, by the way, he easily coped with his job. When he went to paint from nature, he brought back not one but three or four sketches which later in his studio he used to develop, improve and carefully represent every detail.
As in art Č. Znamierovskis was restrained and constant and did not long to the avant-garde, the same he was in life - rather secluded and not inclined to bohemian or other public gatherings and spent the time left from creation in his family or toiling in his fine flower-garden. He felt the need to communicate with nature not only with a palette in his hands. Therefore the artist lived and created in seclusion and noticed almost by nobody. Despite of this his works remain as a model of sincerity and consistency.
