Yellow-red-blue by Vasily Kandinsky

Yellow red blue by Vasily Kandinsky

The picture “Yellow-red-blue” can be considered as a symphony of ideas of Suprematism and Bauhaus. Conditionally, the composition is divided into two parts. The first is filled with geometric figures and bright colors, and the second is filled with abstract forms and dark shades. These two sides show different influences and are designed to enhance the emotional impact on the viewer.

During this period, Kandinsky’s work is characterized by freedom in the processing of planes, the richness of colors and shades-as in this picture, where the artist illustrates his difference from Constructivism and Suprematism-the influential currents of painting at the time.

Two meters wide “Yellow-Red-Blue” consists of several basic forms: a vertical yellow rectangle, an inclined red cross and a large dark blue circle. There are many straight or winding black lines, circular arcs, monochromatic circles and scattered colored chessboards.

This simple visual identification of the forms and the main colored masses present on the canvas is only the first impression of the inner reality of the painting, whose evaluation requires a deeper observation – not only of the forms and colors involved in painting, but their correlation, their absolute and relative position on canvas, their combination and harmony.
