Wassily Kandinsky

Model.ImageDetails.ImageCredit.By.Description

Kandinsky made the Small Worlds (Kleine Welten) portfolio while teaching at the Bauhaus, the influential German art school founded after World War I. For Kandinsky, abstraction was a spiritual language. In these poetic images, he creates a vibrant interplay of line and form, while capitalizing on the strengths of each printmaking method, in order to evoke different sensations or worlds. He used three techniques-drypoint, woodcut, and lithography-each of which had distinct, and for Kandinsky, symbolic, properties. Drypoint, which he regarded as aristocratic, creates sharp, precise lines, while woodcuts produce a richer texture and depth. Contrasting with these traditional techniques is lithography, which the artist viewed as modern and democratic because it offered a smooth surface, a rich vocabulary of colors and marks, and the opportunity to create a seemingly endless number of impressions.

Bring museum quality art into your home or office decor with a canvas print that will never warp or sag. Each canvas print is 1.25” deep, with a hard, sealed finish back and pre-installed hanging hardware, so it’s designed to hang tough and is super easy to display. Add a frame to any canvas print for an eye-catching accent.
