    A painting by Franz Kupka, a Czech avant-garde painter living in Paris. The painting is a mixture of realism and abstraction.

    František Kupka (Sept 23, 1871–June 24, 1957), Czech painter, graphic artist, pioneer and co-founder of the early phases of the abstract art movement. Kupka had a strong interest in color theory and freeing colors from descriptive associations. Margit Rowell described his painting The Yellow Scale (c. 1907) as "Kupka's first attempt to come to terms with color theory in which the result is both personal and successful." Although a self-portrait, the subject of the painting was the color yellow.
