In this untitled painting, Kandinsky makes use of a very distinct gradient from light brown to blue. This is uncharacteristic of Kandinsky as he usually liked to use solid colors or gradients that were not that drastic. By locating the major change of the gradient over where the horizon line would normally be in a perspective painting, Kandinsky Makes the slightly misshapen buildings in the foreground of the building as if dusty and timeless. The distinct shades of brown used in the foreground reinforce the image of the desert city. If there was more than one sun in the picture, I would say this was Tatooine. The white moon/sun/celestial object in the top half of the picture is colored a bluish white, further enhancing the contrast.
Is this a good/useful/informative piece of content to include in the project? Have your say!
