Lot 100 "In a Café" - Kupka František (1871-1957)

Oil on cardboard, signed bottom left  KUPKA, framed in a period frame with Art Nouveau motif,

the framing appears to be original, including nails and the brown paper which protects the back of the painting

60 x 75 (80 x 94,5) cm

First price 950 000 CZK

 

 

There are several expert works validating this work by Kupka available - one expertise is by Dr. Jana Orlíková, second by Dr. Marie Pospíšilová, there are also two Assessments of the date of origin based on the paint analysis (one is by Ing. B. Čtverák, CSc., second one  by Ms. Dorotea Pechová).

 

Our own expert when evaluating this work by František Kupka had considered both possibilities –that it is either his work dating to 1890, or his work made to custom at around 1920 (Kupka has often undertaken such custom work in order to make living), our expert after long consideration believed it to be more likely the latter case.  

Considering that František Kupka’s realistic period does not have a specialist expert we have asked for assessment the well known art expert Dr. Jana Orlíková, who is very meticulous and always devotes an enormous amount of time and attention to the work of art in question. 

 

In her expertise dated 6. 9. 2012 Dr. Jana Orlíková states: „ In my opinion the painting in question „In a Café“ is an original work by František Kupka. It belongs to his first phase of painting, when he was virtually untaught. It brilliantly shows how quickly he matured and how he learned to manage group compositions with more figures as well as their interactions. As far as the actual signature is considered I cannot rule out that is has been added at a later date.  This signature is characteristic of Kupka and it’s first appearance as well as dating is well documented on the painting Nude from 1896 (National Gallery, Prague, inventory no. O9126). However, this painting is already mature, perfect work by this painter.

 

The second Expertise (Expertise no. 3783) is by expert and art historian Dr. Marie Pospíšilová.  She also places this painting into the period of 1880/1890. Citation from her Expertise: „It is an exceptional example of a painting with a rich figural composition from Kupka’s very early period. I cannot think of another such an example – that is what makes this painting so exceptional.“

 

There are also two Assessments of date of origin based on paint analysis.

 The first one by Ing. B. Čtverák, CSc. is based on non-destructive method of rentgeno-fluorescent analysis (RFA). The conclusion of this assessment was that the painting „In a Café”was painted during the period of 1920 – 1940, during Kupka’s lifetime,  however later than the two Expertises assumed.

 

The second assessment was chemical analysis of two paint samples taken from the actual painting. Ms. Pechová then in her laboratory report states that due to occurrence of some white pigments it is most likely that the painting was painted after  1920 (or after 1925).

 

Considering that it is very interesting work of art which is very difficult to evaluate properly we have decided to take it to the market with this conclusion: we have included in the auction oil on cardboard „In a Café“, signed Kupka. We are convinced that it is an original work by František Kupka. It is a beautiful figural scene almost in the style of Lautrec. A certain level of stupor is typical of Kupka’s early works, it can also be taken as „snapshot“ made to custom in Kupka’s later period. The low calling price reflects our current level of knowledge. Potential buyer will be able to agree adequate time to consult this work with his/her experts.
