Original Wassily Kandinsky non-objective lithograph from 1943. Great colors and highly decorative. Would look wonderful in a frame. Size of the piece is 26X20 inches. Looks like he depicts pool players? Cannot find this lithograph anywhere else. Made on heavy paper. Signed in the plate with his monogram. A must own!
The title of the lithograph is “Circle and Square.” It was created during his his “Great Synthesis” period. This is when he was inspired by geometric shapes and microscopic organisms. The depiction appears to be people in an abstracted form conversing. The colors are crisp and bright. The figures are depicted with shapes such as circles, squares, triangles, ect. The purple background is just as puzzling. This exact image was used on the cover of a book by Russian author Andrej Belyj, in 1961. Kandinsky is considered to be the father of abstract and non-objective art. He moved to Munich, Germany to teach at the Academy of Fine Arts. He also taught art at the Bauhaus school of art.
