Farbstudie Quadrate - Description

Farbstudie Quadrate 1913 was painted by the great Russian Abstract Expressionist Wassily Kandinsky. The painting is a series of twelve squares, each containing their own microcosm of colorful circles. Within the circles color spirals inward as a bulls eye, creating an effect that keeps the eye focused inadvertently on every one at the same time. Kandinsky does this by using complimentary colors. Color appears to connect with adjacent boxes. For instance, in the lower right region the outermost bulls-eye bleeds into the background behind the green circle. It is a small trick but extremely powerful. Kandinsky’s wish was not to find any meaning or logic in the circles of Farbstudie 1913 but rather treat them as individual color studies meant to reach the viewer on an emotional level separate from meaning. Expressionism, an early modern movement, relied heavily on color and form in hopes of liberating the world from the prospect that those who are not privy to the secrets of art cannot enjoy it. By merely looking at this piece the viewer is engaging it at the fullest level for no one can look at this piece and feel nothing. Within the boundaries of Farbstudie 1913 are fiery, electric reds, cool hues of blue and smart balances of green. The colors compliment each other and still manage to clash in certain areas. For this reason Kandinsky’s name has endured making him one of the greatest masters of color the world has seen.
