The Bohemian artist Frantisek Kupka (1871-1957) was inspired by Italian Futurism but the Salon des Independants hung him in their Cubist room.
In his works, Kupka works explored the relationship between motion, color, and music, so you could call it Orphism, although these two paintings were made before Apollinaire coined that term. Kupka's draftsmanship, his coloration, and his inventiveness are a delight.
A rather obscure artist, Rudolph Schwankovksy, seems to have encountered the wavy-glass effect, while German-born photographer Erwin Blumenfeld (1897-1969) may have been commissioned by French Vogue or Harper's Bazaar. It's a point I keep returning to, that it is the art of the work that matters and the terms we use to describe it are useful if they increase or understanding and, if not, then not.Images:
