The Singer - Description

The Singer was painted in 1903 by Moscow native Wassily Kandinsky. An oil painting, The Singer measures at only nineteen and one half by fourteen and one half centimeters. Though small in size, the artist’s focus on the atmosphere around its subjects indicate a sense of mood that adds to the weight of this piece. The faces of the man at the piano in the background and the woman singer in the forefront who is holding a bouquet of flowers are unmoving and relatively bereft of detail. The artist does not bother to replicate miniscule details but instead focuses on the forms themselves and their interaction with the surrounding space. This effect places the subjects in the heart of the art being created, completely submerged in its color and beauty. This is a habit found in most of Kandinsky’s work. By draping the canvas with overtones of violet contrasted against the white skin and dress of the woman Kandinsky is able to create a striking effect. The manner in which the piano and its player melt into the foreground is indicative of Kandinsky’s appeal towards painting broad surfaces of the same rich color. Also included in this painting is Kandinsky’s signature use of dark lines who act as wrought iron might to a stained glass window or lamp. Kandinsky isolates color in The Singer very precisely to create a delicate balance and aesthetically pleasing masterpiece.
