Kupka retrospective begins in Prague

A retrospective of work by the major Czech 20th century painter František Kupka gets underway at Prague’s Waldstein Riding School on Friday. Entitled František Kupka 1871–1957, the National Gallery exhibition covers the artist’s entire career.

The chronological show is divided by theme to allow visitors to follow the painter’s path from symbolism to abstraction, of which Kupka was one of the pioneers.
