This is an abstract painting by Russian artist Wassily Kandinsky entitled "Composition IV". He is known as the "inventor of abstract art". This painting was created in 1911 and its medium is oil on canvas. This piece interested me because of the use of color. It is hard to ignore with its use of so many shades and types of color. I like that this piece is left up to interpretation more than a realist painting. Kandinsky was not trying to create pictures instead he wanted his art to have emotional and spiritual meaning. To me this painting seems cheerful and bright. I see a rainbow of colors and looking at it makes me somehow happier.
