In the works of Kandinsky you can feel the relentless movement forward and a lot of changes. In his early canvases, obvious hints of a radical change in style in the future are still visible.
Before us, it would seem, is a completely ordinary picture. It has motives of folklore and fairy tales. But at the same time, it becomes a demonstration that color spots and lines become the main in the artist's works.
The artist deliberately does not draw the faces of his heroes. Their poses are relaxed and thoughtful. This suggests that they are completely deepened in themselves. It seems that the horse itself carries them, since the rider practically does not hold the reins. The plot is very simple. But the viewer can endlessly fantasize about where the characters go.
In the Middle Ages, the movement on the canvases from right to left indicated that the characters were returning home. It is likely that this is why the whole canvas blows with such universal calm.
It seems that we are faced with some kind of old mosaic. Kandinsky uses bright colors to revitalize her. The main color here is blue. This is a shade of the sky itself, as well as a symbol of incredible peace. The whole canvas is filled with tenderness and romance. The painter admitted that in this work he was able to embody what he had been dreaming of for so long. In the process, he felt a thrill of heart, like a true master and a real poet.
Kandinsky founded expressive abstractionism. For the first time he embodied these ideas in engravings made on a traditional tree. Then, from technology and a special lyricism of engravings, he began to draw material for his paintings.
Very often, the artist used a dark background. Here he boldly imposes small mottled strokes on him. It seems that these are some gems, mesmerizing with their radiance.
The landscape is absolutely unreal, but this is where its special charm lies. We feel the artist’s special love for Russia. He seeks to convey this feeling to all of us.
