Stylistic turning point
Produced in the same year in which Kandinsky wrote his book 'Point and Line to Plane', this painting represents a stylistic turning point as the line bends and there are gradations of color again.
The balance of elements
This basis of this painting lies in the balance between contradictory and complementary elements. To the left are geometric lines and luminous colors. To the right are sinuous forms and dark hues.
The main emphasis is on the three primary colors, which form the basis of Kandinsky's studies and articulate the composition around two centers.
Pioneer of abstract art
Kandinsky is generally credited as the pioneer of abstract art, playing with different shapes, colours, forms, and gestural marks.
