Otakar Coubine / Still Life with a Box
Kubín’s oeuvre initially developed along the lines of cubo-expressionism but later elements of neo-classicism asserted themselves. The leitmotif of Kubin’s paintings was landscape painting, in which the artist sought to capture the atmosphere and mood of a given place. Still lifes also feature quite frequently in his oeuvre as witness the present Still Life with a Box. It was painted shortly before Kubín departed for France and it largely sympathises with cubo-expressionism, which was typical for the artists of the Osma group.
