Improvisation 7, Vasily Kandinsky, 1910

Description of the picture:

Improvisation seven – Vasily Kandinsky. 1910. Oil on canvas. 97×131

   Refusing from figurative, subject painting, Vasily Kandinsky was looking for new forms for his new art. These innovative forms were compositions and improvisations, which, without having a pronounced plot program, carried the idea in color and form, that is, they were a narrative in themselves.

   Improvisation No. 7, which appeared in 1910, is written by a multi-layer complex writing technique that is inherent in all the works of the author of this period, taking into account all the laws of color combinations that Kandinsky himself derived. There are a lot of green, black and red-orange.

   The interpretation of flowers, according to the theoretical works of the artist, is as follows:

  • green – indifference, not arousing feelings, calm;

  • black – the end point, the ending, which is akin to the extinction of the Sun or the end of the world;

  • white – silence and silence;

  • red is power.

   What is the meaning of the combination of all these colors? Kandinsky suggested that everyone answer this question independently, since art, in general, is absolutely subjective and intimate, so to speak. The author has repeatedly emphasized that colors should only attract the attention of the viewer, giving him the opportunity for independent creation."
