In the early 20-ies, after returning from Russia to Germany, Kandinsky’s works acquire characteristic geometricity, on the canvas becomes more space, the element gives way to order. Fascinated by the educational process and theoretical work in the Bauhaus, the artist continues his studies on the interaction and influence of the main characters of the canvas – color and form.
In the painting “Several circles” the artist embodies his own theoretical research. Consciously confining himself to only one form, circle, he focuses all attention on other aspects: colors, masses and their mutual arrangement in the space of the canvas determine the composition. In addition, “Several Circles”, unlike many abstract works by Kandinsky, is devoid of any plot connotations. This is a pure abstraction.
