Happy Birthday #wassilykandinsky IMPROVISATION AUF MAHAGONI (IMPROVISATION ON MAHOGANY) sold for $24 million at #sothebys last Monday.
Improvisation auf Mahagoni, 1910 is a powerful and eloquent expression of Wassily Kandinsky's journey toward abstraction. •
The composition achieves an exquisite balance between color and form, displaying a joyous assembly of purple, blue, red and yellow tones applied in sweeping shapes and staccato brushstrokes.
MDF Italia has been awarded the Archiproducts Design Award for the table “Tense material intarsia”. Deloudis is the distributor of MDF ITALIA in Greece and Cyprus.
The surface of the table, covered with marble dust, becomes the space on which to represent the Kandinsky's "Point, Line, Surface" theory.
The surface crossed by the lines can unconsciously transmit to those who observe its direction, an internal musicality; in fact, while admiring the object, everyone will perceive their own music and based on their experiences will receive a different response to the concerns that come from each element.
My simplification of Kandinsky's Squares with Concentric Circles for my @popuppainting event tomorrow night! I decided to use a limited colour palette so that the painting will be more achievable for the guests in that time ⏹️⭕⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #popuppainting#kandinsky#abstract
Something different today:
Wheatstacks was Monet's first series and the first in which he concentrated on a single subject, differentiating pictures only by color, touch, composition, lighting and weather conditions.
Kandinsky later recalls the impact this painting first had on him.. "And once I saw the painting for the first time. It seemed to me that it was impossible to guess without a catalogue that it was a haystack. This lack of clarity was unpleasant to me: I thought that the painter had no right to paint so unclearly." (Kandinsky, 1913)
