About the painting:
Wassily Vasilyevich Kandinsky adored Moscow. He described Moscow as a complicated and mobile city. He labelled it “confusion,” referring to the way events, destinies, and people intertwined. At the same time, he considers Moscow to be the most beautiful city on the planet.
As a result, it’s not surprising that his inspiration comes from Moscow. He dedicated several paintings to her, the most famous of which is the painting “Moscow. Red Square.”
Wassily Vasilyevich Kandinsky was a Russian painter who lived in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. He is widely regarded as one of the forefathers of abstractionism. This is a painting genre that many people do not recognize or understand. Abstractionism is distinguished by unusual color combinations, shapes, and fantastic plots.
At first glance, it is impossible to recognize Moscow in the photograph “Moscow. Red Square.” Bells, chapels, and large white houses can be seen in the distance. However, it is unclear how you can identify the city in this.
For Kandinsky, Moscow is a big jumble, so everything in his paintings is intertwined, confused, and incomprehensible. However, if you look closely, you can see the famous Red Square paving stones. There are small people and even a structure that resembles a Bolshoi Theater.
Abstractionism relies heavily on bright colors. For his Moscow, Wassily Kandinsky used yellow, blue, red, and pink. The technique is extremely specific. Kandinsky used broad strokes of oil paint to create his paintings. To get a bright and clear image, he tried not to mix colors.
Many people are perplexed by abstractionism. They believe that anyone can draw this way, and that it should not be expensive. Nonetheless, paintings by Kandinsky and other artists who painted in this style fetch high prices at auction. However, this painting is housed in Moscow’s Tretyakov Gallery.
