About the artwork on which this rug is based: Composition VIII
“Color is the keyboard, the eyes are the harmonies, the soul is the piano with many strings. The artist is the hand that plays, touching one key or another, to cause vibrations in the soul.”
Composition VIII is, without any doubt, one of Wassily Kandinsky’s best known artworks. He painted it in 1923 and was one of the first paintings acquired by The Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York, where it still is.
About the artist: Wassily Kandinsky
Wassily Kandinsky is recognized as a pioneer of abstract art.
He was one of the first artists to use purely abstract compositions, abandoning recognizable forms in favor of shapes and colors that were intended to convey emotion and spirituality.
Kandinsky’s innovative approach to art continues to be celebrated today for its profound impact on the field of modern art.
His work has inspired countless artists, and his influence can be seen in abstract painting, graphic design, and even architecture.
“For Kandinsky, art was not just about creating beautiful objects, but about expressing spiritual truths and inner emotion through color and form.” – Vivien Greene, Senior Curator of 19th- and Early- 20th-Century Art at Guggenheim Museum.
Kandinsky’s art can be found in various museums and galleries around the world, including the Lenbachhaus Gallery in Munich and the Guggenheim Museum of New York. Additionally, it can also be found in private collections.
Now, it can be found in your home too, translated into a refined handmade rug from your favorite Kandinsky painting.
