The first abstract painting

Wassily Kandinsky’s first abstract watercolor, Untitled painted in 1913 is one of the first artworks to emerge from the representational tradition of Western. The Russian Kandinsky saw an “unfamiliar” painting in his studio, which was very wonderful and magnificent. Walking forward, I realized that one of my paintings was upside down on the wall, and after setting it right, the exciting picture disappeared. He gets inspiration from it. The image makes the picture mediocre and ordinary, while the abstraction makes the picture full of vividness and beauty. Before that, the creation and aesthetics of abstraction were also dependent on other forms. It was Kandinsky who began to make abstract aesthetics the main body of easel art (painting). A large abstract painting art named “improvisation” created by him in 1910 is regarded as the first purely abstract work in human history.
Kandinsky’s in the early period were all free abstractions, also known as lyrical abstractions, characterized by very casual composition and color, often improvisational and free-flowing. Lyrical abstraction emphasizes the inner freedom of individuality and the right to express strong emotions that can cause shapes to fall apart. After 1921, Kandinsky transformed from free lyrical abstraction to geometric abstraction, forming paintings with precise geometry and point and lines to plane, and published another abstract art monograph “points, lines, and planes” in 1926, thus establishing his academic status as the father of abstract art. Kandinsky made great contributions to abstract painting. His study and practice of forms opened up a broad road for later generations and made large abstract painting sweep the whole western art world in a short period, becoming the most tenacious art in the past 100 years.
