Hopefully overtime as I do more research and aquire more favorites, I will have more artists showcases posted here. For now, I'll just start with a few of my all time favorites and works of theirs which I adore.

There isn't much info on Frantisek offered on the web. There was an anthology of his work published not long ago, but its rather pricey. Last semester I was actually able to view a copy of it through the HMFA library. I am flabbergasted with his talent. If I ever become wealthy enough to collect art, one of his pieces would be first on my list. I wouldn't say that he is super well know, but the art community definitly recognizes and respects his achievemnts. A piece of his, that is one of my favorites, hangs in the HMFA in the company of giants. Renoir's and Van Gogh's call Mr. Kupka neighbor.
