Improvisation 7 - Description

Improvisation 7 is a painting by the Modern Russian Abstract-Expressionist Wassily Kandinsky. It is a work of oil on canvas and was painted in the year 1910. Improvisation 7 sees Kandinsky bury his adored color beneath a heavy black line that governs the picture by breaking it into various sections. The effect is not altogether unlike that of wrought iron in the molding of stained glass. The black line in Improvisation 7 allows each colorful section to flourish independently. In addition, the lines create geometric patterns. Color in this painting does not blend so much as it rests on top of each other. In certain areas such as the stretch of green at the bottom of the canvas the yellow paint rests firmly on top, creating a “popping” effect. This painting’s glory can be found in the energy, or the emotion one feels when gazing at it. It is not merely art for art’s sake, and it is not meant to be studied too deeply. Rather, Kandinsky invites you to measure your own reaction when looking at it in hopes that it will spark a feeling of life within all of his viewers. That is the highest goal of Abstract Expressionism and is the reason why it is still studied in the pages of art history today. In a world that is changing rapidly, color is a constant that is always prevalent and can always be identified with on some level.
