Hand-knotted tapestry after design Wassily Kandinsky, second half of the 20th century. This is a beautiful work of art by a master artist is woven in silk on cotton, with a dense pile, i is made by Carpet Weaver's Association. This hand woven tapestry is an interpretation of Kandinsky’s 1920's original painting in oil on canvas, where the paint strokes are interpreted so vivid. The weaver cleverly translates the texture and colors of the paint and brushstrokes into the threads, silk threads dyed and in the finely woven tapestry. Excellence in design and quality craftsmanship. The composition is build up with diagonal color bands overlay-ed with a dynamic and expressive explosion of organic and geometric shapes. The organic lines add contrast to the geometric shapes monochrome blocks, helping to visually break up the space. The composition is framed like a picture frame in a light grey border. In the third quarter of the 20th century the Carpet Weaver’s Association made a series of tapestries, licensed by the heirs of the famous abstract artist Wassili Kandinsky, based on some of his paintings. This precious hand-knotted silk and wool tapestry is a composition from 1915-1925. It is in very good condition. The art and technique of handwoven tapestry weaving has not changed significantly in thousands of years. It is a unique technique that can be adapted in a multitude of ways to the challenges of contemporary designs. Tapestries of the past have lasted for centuries and those woven today are of the same quality. They create a special focus within the space where they hang and provides a warmth to the space. The abstract art pioneer Wassily Kandinsky (1866 - 1944) was a Russian abstract expressionist painter and art theorist, born in Moscow. He moved to Germany and taught at Bauhaus school of art. Kandinsky had an outstanding visual intelligence and a special connection for color and form. He associated the color blue with heaven, super-naturalness, infinity and silence. (Kandinsky quotes, ‘The deeper the blue becomes, the more strongly it calls man towards the infinite, awakening in him a desire for the pure and, finally, for the supernatural... The brighter it becomes, the more it loses its sound, until it turns into silent stillness and becomes white’.
