White Line - Description

White Line was painted in 1920 by Moscow native Wassily Kandinsky. An oil painting, White Line is an abstract piece, measuring ninety-eight by eighty centimeters. The canvas is washed in an earthy tone of dark green, complimented by shades of dulled, dry yellow. A biting flare of red jumps off the canvas, its vibrancy creating a working balance with the compliment of the adjacent forest green tones. Shapes take an important role in this work as well. The shapes are the means in which Kandinsky highlights the importance of the freedom of imagination. Shapes interact at the artist’s whim but never really intersect. This gives the illusion of depth to the painting. The set of red triangles in the lower right region of this panting sit beneath the crossing black set. The subject White Line’s title is a curved triangular line that indicates a favorite technique of Kandinsky’s which was to play with the relationship between hard and soft angles. Here is an object with all of the characteristics of a triangle but instead it is rendered into its circular opposite directly in its middle. The line then is stripped of its triangular status and is the subject for its own debate as the centerpiece for this master compilation from one of the founding fathers of modern abstract art, Russia’s Wassily Kandinsky. The following year, 1921 saw the joining of Walter Gropius's Bauhaus School in Germany as a teacher and philosopher.
