“…Blue Segment 1921, with its combination of different forms, shows Kandinsky’s art at a pivotal moment. Like many of his earlier works, the title focuses on just one section of the painting, in this case the blue segment rather like a crescent moon…” Tate Exhibition

Wassily Kandinsky, is one of my favourites! Thanks for sharing, Marina!
Hi Marina, it me, Nawfal! I’m not sure why I’m anonymous……good grief….
Lets not get into it! 🙃 Good to know it’s you, my friend! 😎
Now I know who ‘someone’ is, I can tell you, I’m not at all surprised! 😉 [mine too of course]
I love Kandinsky. So beautiful 💚
At https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wassily_Kandinsky there’s a good introduction to Kandinsky’s life and art. The most recent develop is from just a few months ago, even though Kandinsky died in 1944: “In 2013 the Lewenstein family filed a claim for the restitution of Kandinsky’s Painting with Houses held by the Stedelijk Museum. In 2020, a committee established by the Dutch minister of culture found fault with the behaviour of the Restitution Committee, causing a scandal where two of its members, including its chairman, resigned. Later that year, a court in Amsterdam ruled that the Stedelijk Museum could retain the painting from the Jewish Lewenstein collection, despite the Nazi theft. However, in August 2021 the Amsterdam City Council decided to return the painting to the Lewenstein family.”
Thanks for sharing this! 😉
Left comment on the original post!
Glad you enjoyed my dear 🐉friend!
An artist like yourself, Marina, would probably NOT have favorites! I love Kandinsky, and he with Marc Chagall are my two favorite modern painters. Thank you for revisiting him.
I’d forgotten how much I love this artist’s work; the colours! 😊🙋♂️
Right?!!!!! Maybe you should show it to your wife… seeing his work (and other favorites) always makes me pick up my brushes! 😉
He has to be one of my all time favourite painters!
Mine too with Klee at the top of my contemporary list! 😉
That’s a beautiful painting. I haven’t thought about Kandinsky in a long time. I love his work.
Me too!!!! Very very much! 😉
I actually have a Kandinsky print that we picked up on a cruise auction. Cool stuff he creates!
Ah, that’s great! Which one?
Cool and ingenius indeed!!!
I cannot for the life of me remember. It’s in a pile with all the other ones that didn’t get put up since I moved here… 🙄
Okay, title doesn’t matter! 😉 xoxoxo
…but I know what you mean on ‘after-move-objects-somewhere-in-a-pile’ …so many such objects here too!
I was talking about them, saying, once my wall is removed between the living room and kitchen, Iose even more potential places to hang them!
Oh…. maybe you can create a painting wall, or hang them from the ceiling! 😉 Hmmm 🤔 …just gave myself an idea! 😉
