About Frantisek Drtikol's works

Frantisek Drtikol plays a pivotal role in the fields of Abstraction and Figuration. Abstract art does not try to represent a faithful depiction of a visual reality, or of nature itself, but instead, with the use of colours, gestural elements and shapes tries to achieve its effect. The term can be applied to art that is primarily based on an object, or figure, where the main features have been simplified. Abstraction has been highly significant in modern art since the 1900s, with its origins grounded in Impressionism. One of the first, most influential movements related to abstraction is Cubism, with artists such as Pablo Picasso and Georges Braque, who through their work laid the foundations for an important number of branches of abstract art.

Figurative art has been around since the earliest stages of visual arts, and involves any form of modern art which references the reality or the human figure, in opposition to Abstraction. Figurative art includes a significant multitude of styles, thus remaining a truly pioneering and major category in which artists created critically acclaimed masterpieces, such as Pablo Picasso’s painting Les Demoiselles D’Avignon, or Paul Cézanne’s The Bathers.
