Wassily Kandinsky: Painting "Heavy Red" (1924), Framed

Wassily Kandinsky made the first steps to abstraction in 1908. In this time on his landscape pictures start featuring bright spots of color which attract the attention to the single isolated aspects of the presented idea. Soon nature gets even more unclear. A watercolor by Kandinsly, dated by 1910 (or, possibly 1913), is famous as his first, not objective work.

His works become compositions, in which the synaesthete looks for color patterns and shape dependencies. Therefore, Kandinsky tried to explore geometric shapes and calculated color schemes systematically. From the period of Kandinsky's teaching at Bauhaus, the painting "Heavy Red" originates.

1866-1944, abstract expressionist, co-founder of the artist group "The Blue Rider" Kandinsky has, like no other, the written "Alphabet of 20th century art". In his abstract painting he brought the original force of colour and composition without the distraction of mapping of object effect. The mystery of life could be captured and represented only by the abstract clash of colour and graphic form in his opinion.

Wassily Kandinsky was born in Moscow in 1866 and died in 1944 in Neuilly-sur-Seine, France. The Economist and lawyer decided in 1896 with his relocation to Munich, finally for an artistic career and began the study of art there. In 1901 he founded time school "Phalanx", he met his future partner of the Munich years Gabriele Munter. Many travels through Europe and Tunis marked its artistic possibilities of expression through the various impressions. Gabriele Munter bought a house in Murnau in 1909, this was a longer period of stay in the town and in Munich.

Kandinsky's early Munich pictures were under the influence of Art Nouveau and the Russian folk art, whose fairy-tale themes long worked in his works after. The glass paintings of the co-founder of the "New Artists' Association Munich" from 1909 and the “The Blue Rider “of 1911 reflect Kandinsky impressions of popular Bavarian art tradition.

During the First World War, the Russians held back on in Moscow. In 1922 he returned to Germany and played a decisive role at the Bauhaus in Weimar and Dessau. Ultimately, it took Kandinsky however to Paris. He lived from 1933 with his wife, whom he had married in Russia, until his death in the metropolis on the Seine.

The encounter with the Russian constructivists showed his mark in Kandinsky's work through geometry and lines that are in dynamic tension with each other. In his theoretical writings he outlined the fundamental harmony of abstract art. The close relationship between music and painting discovered the viewer not only in his paintings, but it is also underlined by the composer Kandinsky: "Colour is the keyboard, the eyes are the harmonies, and the soul is the sound body with many strings. The artist is the virtuoso who brings the soul to vibrate with its grips ...”
