Small Worlds II - Description

Small Worlds II was painted in 1922 by Moscow native Wassily Kandinsky of the German Bauhaus School. A lithograph, Small Worlds II is an abstract piece, measuring about twenty five by twenty one centimeters. This piece is held together by a number of repeating geometric forms that anchor most of Kandinsky’s abstract works. Notice the sharp group of lines intersecting over a broad blue circle that dominates the visual center. The rest of the painting is comprised of a smart combination of full and half circles, creating tension between bent and curved line. Even the background takes the abstract shape of an isocoles triangle but is conflicted by rounded edges. This creates a working tension in the composition. Lines hint at a belonging to triangular form but only intersect, only suggesting an angle should follow. Two black circles, the top one larger than the bottom, stand out for their weight and shape. There is a balance of color in order with the larger yellow half circle depicted opposite rectangular yellow lines crossing in the upper left region. The philosophy inherent in Small Worlds II reflects the beliefs of Walter Gropius’s Bauhaus, where Kandinsky went to teach in 1921. Kandinsky shows us the importance of color in his work and the liberty of the artist to play with form and range with his use of color and line.
