Moscow 1 - Description

Moscow 1 was painted by Wassily Kandinsky of the Russian avant-garde in 1916. An oil on canvas, this painting is a blaze of colorful glory composed in the manner of Kandinsky’s abstract style. Color in this piece both blends together and sits apart from one another through the use of line. Kandinsky often played with lines his artwork, using them as he needed to give his work the structure or fluid impression that he sought. This piece has both. Look to the sky of the upper left region of this painting to see a blended mixture of white and blue fading into the yellow beneath it. Below, the city takes the shape with its structure and geometric use. It is possible to see rectangles, triangles, square grids and also the artist’s signature bent triangle that appears in the blue and orange streak at the upper right middle section of this composition. Moscow 1 depicts the clash of both old and modern architecture in Russia around the turn of the nineteenth century with massive buildings interacting with antiquated turrets. This piece is not only a celebration of Kandinsky’s bright pallet and appreciation for the nature of creation but also a look into Russia’s storied past. Moscow 1 speaks volumes for the artist’s ability to transcend reality and bend it according to the whim of his brushstrokes and tone.
