Houses in Munich - Description

Houses in Munich was painted by Russian avant-garde artist Wassily Kandinsky in the year 1908. This painting, an oil on cardboard measuring thirty-three by forty- one centimeters depicts a residential neighborhood in Munich, Germany. Kandinsky, well-renowned for his celebration of color and exaggeration of lines, shows us a scene meant to strike a chord in the soul of those who appreciate the freedom and exuberance of expressionism. Color provides a spark to this piece with rich, warm tones of red and yellow sitting placidly against a mellow orange sky. In the background long rectangular strips of blue and green stand next to each other and create a sense of abstract serenity. Notice how Kandinsky groups his forms together to create individual masses of color amidst a field of green grass. The people in Houses in Munich are separated by lines and variations of color but in essence occupy one shape or unit in the same way that the individual houses stand as one unit despite being divided into different properties. In the middle ground simple geometrical shapes sit stacked on top of each other to form what appears to be a horse and buggy. Simplicity dominates Houses in Munich, in turn creating complexity through a harmonious link between subjects and consistency in application. Wide brushstrokes and broad planes of color combine to form this classic Russian abstract work of art.
