Antonín Kybal's work stands out for its effort to explore, experiment and subdue the technical possibilities of materials. In the case of painting, it is mainly his sense of color and contrast. The 1968 work not coincidentally places glowing foci between static, statue-like colossi that strictly delineate and limit the space of life force. Maybe until they pretty much suffocate it. Antonín Kybal was our most prominent figure in home textile design and an innovator of textile creation in the 20th century. Kybal's main contribution was the ability to enforce high aesthetic, craftsmanship and material demands in industrial production and to blend them with current aesthetic trends. The painting was created as a direct response to the events of August 1968 in Czechoslovakia. Original author's metal frame. The work comes from the artist's estate.
