František Kupka

František Kupka (1871-1957) was a graphic artist and painter from Czecheslovakia. He is credited as one of the pioneers of abstract art and the Orphism art movement. His earlier figurative works reflect his strong interest in colour theory which developed into more geometric abstract works later on in his career. Mighty splendid work I think.

  1. I just saw the yellow one at the Museum of Fine Art in Houston yesterday. @ http://www.mfah.org/exhibitions/circa-1900-decorative-arts-turn-century/

  2. It was pretty nice-they showed some pretty nice objects in the exhibition. Paris metro gate, Egon Schiele painting, and something called the Yellow book which was a produced by Aubrey Beardsley http://www.arlis-txmx.org/node/301 Do you like Aubrey Beardsley, too?

      Love Aubrey Beardsley. I wrote my English Honours thesis on Oscar Wilde and the Decadent Period. Aubrey Beardsley came up a lot in my discussions. Sounds like a great exhibition.
