Visit led by Curator Brigitte Léal
The exceptional retrospective of František Kupka at the Grand Palais is co-organised by the Centre Pompidou’s deputy directrice Catherine David and Brigitte Leal. Kupka is one of the great pioneers of abstract art that emerged at the beginning of the 20th Century. His highly personal work was not only marked by his rejection of conventional representation. It reveals a history of abstract art that has its roots in Viennese symbolism nurtured by a spiritual and philosophical heritage specific to Central Europe.
