Description of the painting by Vasily Kandinsky “Black Accompaniment”


Vasily Kandinsky - Russian painter, founder of abstract art. His talent for drawing was discovered only at the age of 30 after meeting Monet's work “Haystack”. Until this moment, Vasily, having received a law degree, becomes a teacher. A little later, University of Dorpat invites him to work as an assistant professor, but Kandinsky refuses.

The future artist changed his place of residence several times, choosing between Russia, Germany and France. As a result, Kandinsky received French citizenship and moved his wife with him.

As an artist, Vasily Vasilyevich visits many exhibitions around the world, teaches painting lessons and improves his skills under the guidance of the best masters of his time. Subsequently, Kandinsky develops an innovative concept of the rhythmic use of color in painting. In his work, he identified the main line for the creation of abstract works, which were widely popular among the public.

The painting “Black Accompaniment” was painted in 1924. It contains various kinds of geometric shapes, "superimposed" on each other. The work is filled with an unusual combination of bright and catchy colors on a black blurred background.

The artist liked to play with the imagination of the viewer, choosing a variety of forms of image and color. Thus, he introduced society to his unusual vision of the environment, which became a real sensation among esthetic critics who managed to find some meaning in his works.

Kandinsky operates on a combination of incongruous. In his canvases, one can consider the abundance of sharp shapes and artsy colors. The specific work of the artist did not become one of the popular paintings, but she found her viewer in a series of paintings on the aesthetics of geometry.
