Improvisation 19 - Description

Wassily Kandinsky of Russia’s avant-garde painted Improvisation 19 in the year 1911. An oil painting on canvas, the painting measures about one hundred twenty by one hundred forty-five centimeters. Kandinsky’s Improvisation 19 was painted with the intention of its color striking first and foremost. Widely known for his placement and distortion of abstract figures in his artwork, Kandinsky strived to create emotion through the use of color and shape. Notice the slight gradation occurring between the blue and red and the subtle merging to create a light purple above the visual center of Improvisation 19. Notice the use of the heavy black lines as they rest over the lower left region of this piece. They are indicative of a mass of people as suggested by the facial forms. Below them streaks of orange and yellow glow fiercely and create the impression of living souls. The figures on the right, however, elongated and hollow, show merely blue at their core. Not present in Improvisation 19 are Kandinsky’s signature clean cut planes holding down the background. Geometric patters appear in the form of abstract arms and legs along the right and left sides. Above, a heavy black line closes off the top region and keeps the eye focused on the center region most richly laden in color. Kandinsky’s improvisations were painted somewhat crudely in relation to his unique style and this is what gives them so much character.
