Improvisation 12 - Description

Wassily Kandinsky’s Improvisation 12 was one of many painted by the Russian avant-garde artist in 1910, one year before his great collaboration with the famous exhibition Der Blaue Reiter (“The Blue Rider”). The color red takes the stage in Improvisation 12 as the primary spectacle commanding attention amidst overtones of blue, yellow white and black. Improvisation 12 adheres to Kandinsky’s principle of exaggerating both form and color in a manner conducive to promoting independent interpretation. Though it is clear that Kandinsky was in fact depicting a rider on horseback, the glory of this piece is that ultimately the composition allows the viewer to see the piece as they please. Certain aspects such as a heavy black line and separated areas of unblended color stand out as signature to the artist’s style. The intention in Kandinsky’s approach is to let the color motivate the inspiration of its viewer rather than subject or form. For this reason color is treated in the highest regard and there is much emphasis on each stroke’s place and importance in the overall composition. Kandinsky believe that color is the driving force behind the painting and can lead to feelings of profound inspiration if applied correctly. However, there is no right or wrong way to view this painting. The viewer is allowed to take part in its constant re-creation through their own eyes.
