Omschrijving
Kandinsky - Du spirituel dans l'art et dans la peinture en particulier - 1954
Kunst, 1e verdrag abstractie - Aantal: 1 - Boek

New edition of the first theoretical treatise on abstraction by the painter Vassily Kandinsky (1866-1944) originally published in Germany in 1912 and the original title of which was Ueber das Geistige in der Kunst, insbesondere in der Malerei. The first French edition is from 1949, published by the Galerie Drouin. ‎

In this treatise, Kandinsky compares humanity’s spiritual life to a large triangle similar to a pyramid and which the artist’s task and mission is to reach the top through the exercise of his talent. The tip of the triangle is made up of only a few individuals who bring the sublime bread to humanity. A spiritual triangle that moves slowly forward and up, even if sometimes it remains motionless. During periods of decadence, souls fall towards the bottom of the triangle and people seek only external success and ignore purely spiritual forces.

Work illustrated with compositions by the artist in black and white in the text and three tipped-in tables. Postface by Charles Estienne.

2nd volume of the Le Cavalier d’Épée collection.

Paperback. Cover sunned on the spine and the border, signs of handling on the boards, sturdy volume. Fresh and clean inside.
