Mountain - Description

Perhaps no painting better reflects Russian avant-garde painter Wassily Kandinsky’s love of color better than his 1909 masterpiece Mountain. The glory of this painting begins with a background showing broad planes washed in hues of bright blue, red, green and yellow. The use of white creates contrast and boosts the rest of the spectrum as well. Kandinsky’s forms are purposely ambiguous and invite free interpretation from the viewer. Mountain was created with the intention of inspiring without having to rely on a familiar object or scene. Kandinsky takes the viewer onto the front lines of artistic inspiration, offering a scene of pure creative genius. Notice the way that colors interact with each other on this canvas. There is a distinct line separating the blue from the red in the lower right region of the painting. Below that, a sharp black line separates a jagged smear of yellow from its white and blue borders as well. Even amongst the red tones inhabiting the upper regions of this work, each color stands apart even in the midst of dramatic gradation. It is as if Kandinsky wanted the distinction of every chosen shade to stand apart as its own force so that no color might go un noticed. The overall compilation draws strength from its borders, its abstract shapes and its ability to create a sense of gusto through its exhilarating array of colors.
