This artwork is - according to Kandinsky, the most complex piece he ever painted.
Kandinsky’s “Composition VII” is justly considered to be the apex of his artwork before the
First Word War. More than 30 sketches made in watercolors and oil paints precede this painting, and
they can serve as “documentary” proof of this work creation. Surprisingly that after the painter
had finished his long preliminary work, the composition itself was created for 4 days only. This
can be proved by photographs taken between the 25th and the 28th of November 1913. The main theme,
which is an oval form intersected by an irregular rectangle, is perceived like the center
surrounded by the vortex of colors and forms. By means of records and some works examination art
historians defined that the “Composition VII” is a combination of several themes namely
Resurrection, the Judgment Day, the Flood and the Garden of Eden. Such combination is expressed as
a symbiosis of pure painting. Source: www.wassilykandinsky.net.
