Abstract artist Kandinsky was an influential Russian painter and art theorist. Kandinsky "analyses on interrelation between forms and colors resulted not from random brush strokes but from the painter "inner experience. This pioneer was celebrated as a true poet who could create an aesthetic experience that engaged the sight, sound, and emotions of the public without copying nature. His spiritual approach and artistic knowledge allowed him to explore the depth of human feelings.
Major figure in twentieth-century art and the undisputed master of abstraction, Kandinsky painted "On White II" in 1923. He moved away from the lyrical levitation of free forms. Geometrical elements took on increasing importance. Triangles and circles dominate in this work to express an intelligent combination of the two main colors in the painting: black and white. The original masterpiece is held in the collections of Centre Pompidou, Paris.
