K is for Kupka

A great autumn envelope arrived from Fabienne, with this wonderful stamp celebrating the art of František Kupka (1871-1957), arriving in perfect time for Sunday Stamps. He was a co-founder of the abstract and orphic cubism art movements. [Links take you to wikipedia pages]

A close up of the stamp, showing the painting Planes by Colors.

And included (amongst other things) a postcard featuring some medieval (I think?) art showing a Cheval de Neptune.

    1. It is nice and large, which is always great so you can appreciate the art better.

  2. I hadn't heard of him until now. Interesting work.

    1. I love abstract art, so was surprised I hadn't heard of him - seems like an important influence on the genre.

  3. Its wonderful when stamps introduce me to artists I don't know. I like the synaesthesia vibe of the envelope.

    1. Seems like La Posts has educated quite a few of us this week.
