František Kupka - Cosmis Spring I
František Kupka is one of the most prominent abstract painters in the world. As he mentioned in his book Tvoření v umění výtvarném (Creation in Visual Art), he did not seek to copy nature but in a sense wished to create the same as nature. He sought inspiration in varied shapes of nature such as ice crystals, flower buds, freezing vapour, clouds, airflow, and falling stars. Kupka was fascinated by shape analogies which he found in various levels of microstructures and macrostructures – from microphotographs of cells to astronomical photographs of planets.
