• R.H. Quaytman, Replica of Kobro\'s Spatial Composition 2 (1928), 2000

Each Chapter—the basic “unit” for Quaytman’s creative project—usually comprises several or several dozen images which somehow encapsulate her personal experiences and artistic fascinations from specific times and places. Each new chapter is numbered to mark the passage of time and the gradual accomplishment of Quaytman’s lifelong artistic project. The artist treats each chapter and the images it contains as a single creative venture. It should be pointed out that Quaytman considers her essential inspirations to be Katarzyna Kobro’s sculptures, Władysław Strzemiński’s theory of Unism, and Polish constructivist traditions, which she discovered during her time in Łódź. Both of Quaytman’s pictures in the Museum collection were created with reference to Kobro’s work.
