Pillow cover Kandinsky - Auf Weiss II
Vassily Kandinsky (1866 - 1944) was a major figure in twentieth century art and the undisputed master of abstraction. He was born in Moscow. Before finally settling in France, he spent the period between the two world wars in Berlin and taught at the Bauhaus from 1922. He developed a geometric artistic vocabulary that attached great importance to the intuitive process.
Kandinsky painted On White II in 1923. He moved away from the lyrical levitation of free forms. Geometrical elements took on increasing importance. Triangles and circles dominate in his work. The lines are fully affirmed. The large diagonal lines smoothly structure the composition of a new pictorial space based on the presence of a vacuum.
