Code: 10466


W: 71cm (28")H: 69cm (27.2")D: 1cm (0.4")

Silk woven tapestry by Carpet Weavers Accociation. This hand woven silk tapestry on cotton is an interpretation of Kandinsky’s 1925, ‘In Blue’. The original painting, oil on canvas, is in the art collection North Rhine-Westphalia, Dusseldorf, Germany. 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. 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. 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’.) This hand woven wall hanging rug has the original label attached and seal of authenticity. Over that seal it is signed M.Bartz.
