Composition VII by Wassily Kandinsky
The years 1910 to 1914 are considered the peak of Kandinsky’s career and this painting is cited as the pinnacle of his artistic achievement during the period. He made more studies for this composition than for any other, though he painted the final version in just three days. Composition VII is believed to allude to the apocalyptic themes of Deluge, Last Judgement, Resurrection and Paradise. A swirling hurricane of colours and shapes, it was considered by Kandinsky to be the most complex piece he ever painted and it is the most famous painting by the artist.
Wassily Kandinsky (1866 – 1944) was a Russian artist who is considered the Father of Abstract Art, painting some of the earliest works in the genre. Art was deeply spiritual for Kandinsky and music was integral to many of his works. He was inspired by colour and believed he could convey emotions through it. Kandinsky was one of the most influential painters of the twentieth century.
A great image for framing behind glass, or block mounting on canvas to create a focal point and conversation piece in any art lover's home.
Please Note:: this is a very high resolution print of the original artwork which means every brush stroke, inconsistency, and even the texture of the canvas it was originally painted on can be seen. It is almost impossible to differentiate it from the original with the naked eye, but if you want a smooth, flawless, flat looking texture, we recommend you select a photograph rather than an art print.
