Improvisation 31 (Sea Battle)
Kandinsky was the first to abandon any reference to recognizably reality in his work. Kandinsky believed that color could convey emotion irrespective of content. He used rainbow bright colors and loose brushwork to create his art. He titled them with titles such as "Composition 2", because he wanted to keep them non-objective.
I chose this painting because I love color, and this particular painting stood out to me. Although it is objective, I can see ships and their sails in the work. I think that the contrasting and complimentary colors really make the painting pop and allow you to make your own conclusions about the artwork.
