Improvisation 11 - Description

Wassily Kandinsky’s Improvisation 11 was painted in 1910, one year before his involvement with the famous exhibition Der Blaue Reiter (“The Blue Rider”). Improvisation 11 promotes Kandinsky’s opinion that color acts as an x-variable in a painting. Color has the ability to manipulate a composition and create a piece of art that can connect deeply with its viewer. Improvisation 11 creates tension through a seemingly reckless display of color and form that co-exists in an exciting and vigorous piece. While the figure in the lower right corner appears to be a dog, and could very well be due to the artist’s love of painting animals, it was not Kandinsky’s intention to draw attention to its meaning but rather its relationship in the larger context of the painting. The shape has been rendered to exploit its color and form. It is separated from the yellow background by a heavy black line that is characteristic in most of Kandinsky’s work. Notice the exaggerated yellow triangle at the visual center of this painting. Its demand for attention in turn elicits more yellow to jump off of the canvas. A streak crosses the center of the painting to the right of the yellow triangle and is broken into strips by heavy black lines similar to the wrought iron barriers one would find in a stain glass piece. There is a strong separation of colors in this painting allowing each to hold its own important place on the canvas.
