Munich-Schwabing with the Church of St Ursula - Description

Munich-Schwabing with the Church of St Ursula was painted by Wassily Kandinsky of the Russian avant-garde in 1916. An oil on canvas, this abstract painting is a testimony to Kandinsky’s appreciation for bright colors and clear brushstrokes. The manner in which Kandinsky applied paint in Munich-Schwabing with the Church of St Ursula shows his ability to convey mood and emotion with relatively no need for excess detail. In this regard Kandinsky’s work brings to mind the European Impressionists who painted before him. However, he branches off in that regard with his use of geometric patterns most often depicted in the structure dominating his work. Here Kandinsky shows us the product of his intense color theory and appreciation for nature. Notice how whatever lines are used here are the product of a mass of color lying on top of another. There is no deliberate structure beyond the application of shapes constructed in the manner of buildings. Even the people appear as one mass separated only by various shades. This was done with the intention of creating fluidity and freedom in Munich-Schwabing with the Church of St Ursula without having to clutter the canvas with excess borders. This is not to say that Kandinsky does not use lines. Many of his works stand out as being primarily driven by linear patterns. He simply opts not to in this painting and the effect is a lucid depiction of Russian life in 1916.
