Overview of the painting :

Improvization 7 – Vasily Vasilievich Kandinsky. 1910. Oil on canvas. 97×131

   Refusing figureative, subject painting, Vasily Kandinsky was looking for new forms for his new art. These innovative forms were compositions and improvisations, which, without a brightly expressed plot program, carried thoughts in color and form, that is, were narratives in themselves.

   Improvization No. 7, which appeared in 1910, is written by the multilayer complex writing technique inherent in all the works of the author of this period, taking into account all the laws of the combination of colors that Kandinsky himself deduced. There are many green, black and red orange.

   The interpretation of colors, according to the theoretical works of the artist, is as follows:

  • green – indifference, not arousing feelings, calm ;
  • black is the end point, the finale, which is akin to the extinction of the Sun or the end of the world ;
  • white – silence and silence ;
  • red is power.

   What is the point of a combination of all these colors? Kandinsky offered to answer this question to everyone on his own, since art, in general, is absolutely subjective and intimate, so to speak. The author repeatedly emphasized that colors should only attract the attention of the viewer, giving him the opportunity of independent creation.
