Arab Town - Description

Wassily Kandinsky of Russia’s avant-garde painted Arab Town in the year 1905. A painting completed in tempera on cardboard, the Arab Town measures about one hundred twenty by one hundred forty-five centimeters. In this piece Kandinsky takes the viewer into the desert, approaching a town from afar. The painting differs somewhat from the artist’s purely abstract approach, as buildings and people take detailed and complete form. At first Arab Town reads much more like a story book than a study of geometric tendencies. However, one can see that the city is still nothing more than Kandinsky’s own construction, a smart pile of rectangles, half circles and straight lines. The only difference here is that they stand together as a congruent unit rather than scattered over a colored plane. The painting is broken into a foreground, a middle ground and a background not altogether unlike a classically arranged piece. The subjects seem to form a line of bodies leading the eye directly into the heart of the painting to a cart sitting outside a building bearing a small domed roof. Remarkable to this piece is Kandinsky’s approach to color and detail as well as his use of application specifically in the brown middle section. Observe the difference in heavy lines from the figure closest to the viewer and lighter ones used to depict the person moving away.
