The Louise and Walter Arensberg Collection, 1950
We take a look at some of Russian artist, Wassily (born Vassily) Kandinsky’ work from the 1920s. Though difficult to interpret and put into words, his work, particularly the paintings we chose feel relatively appealing and relevant even now, decades later. I guess that’s one distinction of a great great artist, – their work transcends through time. The above artwork ‘Circles In A Circle’ was painted in Germany in 1923. During this period he had started exploring with geometric shapes, shifting away from his previous style of painting human and animal figures. Throughout the the 1920s and 30s, his work continued to revolve around shapes and lines.
Have a look at more of his work below.
