MALAGA, SPAIN – František Kupka took painting to
its essential elements: the plane, line and dot. Over the course of his career
he developed a highly distinctive and unique style that still defies any attempt
to classify
it due to its focus on science, philosophy and
mysticism. In addition, Kupka’s work suggests new approaches to interpreting the
birth and evolution of modern art.
The exhibition held at the Museo
Picasso Málaga brings together around 90 works, including oil paintings,
drawings, gouaches and prints. They span the career of this unique artist, from
his earliest academic studies to his pioneering discoveries within the field of
abstract painting. On view though 25 April,
