  • 1. WASSILY KANDINSKY “ Every work of art is a child of its age.” -1911, Concerning the spiritual in art
  • 2. WASSILY KANDINSKY “Here I seek only to point the way, to establish certain analytical methods.”-1923 Point and line to plane
  • 3. Kandinsky, 1866-1896
    • Wassily Kandinsky was born in Russia in 1866.
    • (On this slide is the entirety of Kandinsky’s work during this period.)
    • Fun Wassily facts:
    • He didn’t paint outside of his spare time.
    • He was a prominent academic who was offered a professorship at a University.
  • 4. Pre-War Flowing, abstract forms Wild color and gesture
  • 5. Post-War Straight lines, clean forms Systematic composition
  • 6. On the spiritual in art
    • Published in 1911, Kandinskys spiritual philosophy about art,
    • And his ideas about color :
    • “ Green is the most restful color that exists”
    • “ Blue is the typical heavenly color”
    • “ Gray = immobility and rest”
    • Some of which were crazy:
    • “ Yellow… violent raving lunacy”
    • Because he had….
  • 7. Synesthesia
    • Synesthesia is a medical condition where the senses become linked.
    • Kandinsky’s sense of sight and color were linked: he saw painting as music, and heard music as painting.
    • His color associations:
    • “ Keen yellow looks sour.”
    • “ Light warm red… sound of trumpets, strong, harsh, ringing.”
    • “ Violet… deep notes of wood instruments, (e.g. the basson).”
    • “ Orange is like a man convinced of his own powers, or an old violin”.
  • 8. Point and Line to Plane
    • Point and line to plane (1926) is Kandinsky’s defense of his work, a rigidly systematic explanation of his ideas.
    • While it included color, it focused on the compositional in his work. Points, lines, and planes.
    • It exemplified the rigid Bauhaus style, with right angles and clean shapes.
    • Shows his postwar work.
  • 9. Weimar modernism
    • Philosophical movement in the Weimar republic. 1919-1933
    • “ One has value only as a function, and legitimizes ones existence through the semblance of sobriety.”
    • It was a “Rigourous style of proving oneself”
    Ernst Bloch, a leader of the movement Georg Lukacs, another modernist thinker
  • 10. Kandinsky’s Art as Modernism
    • Modernist said of Weimar man: “his existence resembles not a line but a series of points”
    • They talked about the “uneasy angst typical of german expressionism” turning into “a more stabilized culture of impersonality.”
    • Kandinsky’s art becomes more impersonal after the war.
    • He kept his abstraction, but left color and spirituality behind.
    From this… … to this.
