Decorative pillow featuring a painting of Wassily Kandinsky “Small Wolds VI” (1922) ©Les Editions du Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris Kleine Welten VI”
Abstract artist Kandinsky was an influential Russian painter and art theorist. Kandinsky “analyses on interrelation between forms and colors resulted not from random brush strokes but from the painter “inner experience. This pioneer was celebrated as a true poet who could create an aesthetic experience that engaged the sight, sound, and emotions of the public without copying nature. His spiritual approach and artistic knowledge allowed him to explore the depth of human feelings.
The original masterpiece Small Worlds VI” featured on this pillow is a lithograph from the Small World “Kleine Welten” portfolio, which includes a total of twelve prints. Each technique was carefully chosen for its unique character to make the artist’s most important portfolio: six lithographs for the painterly, two woodcuts for the strong contours and four etching for the fine lines. The artist’s view of the world is here described as a self-contained cosmic entity consisting of innumerable independent, hermetic units.
