A Couple

Zdeněk Palcr - A Couple
Starting in the 1950s, Zdeněk Palcr’s work tended to simplify form into several basic features and rid it of any detail. Palcr continued to elaborate a figural type of a human couple with increasing abstractness and reduction in subsequent years. The red polychrome couple connecting two individualized figures into a single enclosed sculpted unit is inspired by the cubist sculpture Harmony by Gutfreund (1912), which has not survived. The embracing figures are stylized in robust cubist volumes devoid of detail.
