Both the coloured and the black & white versions of the etching positively belong to many of the other studies to the famous Kupka´s work Amorpha (it exists in several versions also), which is in the collection of the Prague National Gallery. Kupka was coming back during his whole carrier to this way of abstract expression in the image, which should in the same time express a true relation to the reality. It is not possible to say that his carrier was divided to certain phases and linear development: similar studies, graphics and drawings are found in Kupka´s work in the span of several decades. On the basis of labelling, which theorists occupying themselves with studying the work of Kupka are using, this study belongs to the cosmological ones.
