Based on the technical and scientific advances of his time, such as chronophotography, which decomposes movements, or X-rays that reveal material, František Kupka produced around 1910 such works as Plans by Colors , half-path between figuration and abstraction. Structured by a gradient of transparent colors, the scene seems perceived by a look capable of penetrating things and thus accessing their "truth". Pursuing this prismatic decomposition of the real, Kupka ends, soon after, with canvases composed only of vertical colored planes from which every figure disappears.
