A little Kandinsky

From Kimbal Welch

Published before 2005


I just thought everyone would find this amusing considering some of our previous discussions.

If we begin at once to break the bonds which bind us to nature, and devote ourselves purely to combination of pure color and abstract form, we shall produce works which are mere decoration, which are suited to neckties and carpets.

-- Kandinsky : Concerning The Spiritual in Art, (Trans. M.T.H. Sadler) p47.
