The first comprehensive pictorial manifestations of Kupka's credo were revealed in Amorpha, Fugue in Two Colors, and Amorpha, Warm Chromatic, both shown at the 1912 Salon d'Automne; they were the first entirely abstract compositions he exhibited. The Amorpha paintings introduce three themes essential to Kupka's oeuvre that reveal the multiplicity of his interests and aspirations: the pictorial analysis of movement and the fascination with rhythm, the attraction to music as a non-figurative art form, and the imagery of astronomy and the cosmos.
