The Art of Spiritual Harmony
Cosimo, Inc., 01.05.2007 - 96 Seiten
"Wassily Kandinsky s contributions as a theorist were arguably more influential on modern art than any of his paintings. In Concerning the Spiritual in Art, first published in 1914, Kandinsky both promotes and defends a form of art in which painters express themselves in abstract terms independent of the material world around them, much as musicians do. Divided into two parts, About General Aesthetic (including an examination of geometrical forms) and About Painting (a discussion of the psychology of color and the language and form of color), Concerning the Spiritual in Art offers an insight into the mind of one of the most renowned of all abstract painters and a preview of the art that he was to produce in the years to come. Russian painter WASSILY KANDINSKY (1866 1944), one of the most famous artists of the 20th century, pioneered abstract art. His other books include Point and Line to Plane and Kandinsky, Complete Writings on Art."

Seite xxvi - The nightmare of materialism, which has turned the life of the universe into an evil, useless game, is not yet past; it holds the awakening soul still in its grip.
Seite xxvi - Dover, 1977) 1-5. is not a dream, and the gulf of darkness reality. This doubt, and the still harsh tyranny of the materialistic philosophy, divide our soul sharply from that of the Primitives. Our soul rings cracked when we seek to play upon it, as does a costly vase, long buried in the earth, which is found to have a flaw when it is dug up once more. For this reason, the Primitive phase, through which we are now passing, with its temporary similarity of form, can only be of short duration. These...
