Composition VIII by Wassily Kandinsky
Constructivism was an influential modern art movement marked by constructing objects in artworks that didn’t exist in the world. This painting from 1923 is a synthesis of elements from Suprematism, Constructivism and the Bauhaus school; and illustrates Kandinsky’s command over modern art of the time. Composition VIII with its rational geometric order is the polar opposite to the previous and more famed work in the series Composition VII. It is one of the most renowned works of the Composition series as well as Kandinsky’s Bauhaus period.
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.
