This exhibition will offer an array of 106 fascinating black & white ink drawings and paintings generally regarded as the Kupka's most comprehensive set of illustrations. Depicting different stages of social and cultural development, the paintings accompanied a significant book The Earth and Its Inhabitants by Élisée Reclus, a French geographer and theoretician of anarchism. The collection is a congenial testimony, both celebratory and accusatory, to the history of mankind, as well as a deep and unrelenting probe into the past and the present of the then world.
