Kupka exhibition opens at Prague’s National Gallery


A large exhibition of the Czech modernist painter František Kupka opens on Friday at the National Gallery in Prague. Entitled The Journey to Amorpha, the exhibition follows the painter’s path toward non-figurative art. The exhibit is based on Kupka’s paintings that were first exhibited in Paris in the early 20th century and are considered the first public presentation of abstract visual art. The exhibition, held in cooperation with Paris’s Centre Georges Pompidou, the Museum of Modern Art in New York and other institutions runs until March 2013.
