In any case, he makes a clear, personal case against the popular “art pour l’art”, not because he has an especial dislike of it, but because he imagines a greater, more satisfying art to come. A wonderful essay both plain and in his writing of a philosophical and very strong reflexive reach.

I wish the art was in color and not black and white since he talks so ndll about the significance of color especially red. Indian art in that term. Triangles, circles, squares; reds, yellows, blues—all these were like characters for Kandinsky, with their own personalities and temperaments. It would be easy for Kandinsky to hide behind vague explanations to increase the sense of profundity in kqndinsky art.

His statement of artistic intent- you gotta pat him on the back for that idealistic “whoosh”- appears equally specious. As every word spoken rouses an inner vibration, so likewise nelo every object represented. It is time to call back the soul.

Concerning the Spiritual in Art is a short book more like an extended essay spirittuale Kandinsky, detailing his personal philosophy of art. This is not to say that Kandinsky is in favor of pure abstraction. To ask other readers questions about Concerning the Spiritual in Artplease sign up.

Along with his own groundbreaking paintings, this book had a tremendous impact on the development of modern art. In it, the artist explains his plans for the ascent of spiritually fulfilling and expressive art that surpasses mere replication of natural form.

Spieituale strange, then, that Kandkindy is seen as a progenitor of “modern” art and its seamless, to my eye, drift into the incohate abstractions of postmodernity. In the first part of the book he writes about the historical movement of art as a pyramid, where the apex represent the forerunners — those who will be understood and accepted only at at a later time: This will be a new art kandinskky the sacred.

I was pleasantly surprised to discover that in addition to his obvious mastery as a painter, Kandinsky was also an accomplished and logical writer. I most enjoyed his breakdown of color theory, setting antitheses of white and black obviyellow I’m finally getting around to reading Wassily Kandinsky’s Concerning the Spiritual in Art.

The lower the segment the great it is in breath, depth, and area. Plus, I found completely stimulating just by reading his description of contrasting colors, their antagonisms and synthesis.

Jul 10, David rated it really liked it. It needs to reveal the spiritual, but not separate it off from the material world.

That is at any rate the case at present. We need what he calls an “integral worldview”, what is also sometimes called an incarnational spirituality.

In any composition the material side may be more or less omitted in proportion as the forms used are more or less material, and for them substituted pure abstractions, or largely dematerialised objects.

But it will not do everything. I won’t get into his argument about the artist as king. Truly appreciating art always seemed like the province of finer souls. He painted the ‘treeness’ of the tree Magnificent test for an equally beautiful thought.

The life of the spirit may be fairly represented in diagram as a large acute-angled triangle divided horizontally into unequal parts with aarte narrowest segment uppermost. To me, Kandinsky is the Kandinsky from the Bauhaus period, when his paintings were dominated by abstract compositions comprising lines, circles, triangles, and bold colours.

The introduction is enough to get you excited to read it and I just love his description about what art is and ought to be.
