1965 — Untitled. Ink and Gouache on Paper. Feminist Art style. Eva Hesse (1936-1970 ). Tate Gallery, London, UK.

Hesse made drawings throughout her career. During 1964–1965 she was based in Germany as the guest of a textile manufacturer and collector who provided her with a studio space above his textile factory. Many of her drawings from this period, including this one, combine imagery which is principally abstract and organic with details that suggest machine parts and elements drawn from the factory environment.

Art of the Day – 6/3/13 (Composition X, Wassily Kandinsky, 1939)

Daily Artwork — “Composition X, Wassily Kandinsky, 1939”

Use the images posted in this feature for writing prompts, warm-up activities, drawing templates or as part of an artwork critique.

1939 — Composition X. Oil on Canvas. Abstract Art style. Wassily Kandinsky (1866-1944). Kunstsammlung Nordrhein-Westfalen, Düsseldorf, Germany

“Kandinsky often related the painting of colors and pictures on a canvas to the composition of beautiful music, and as such, named many of his paintings variants of Composition. His analogy of art as a musical composition revolved around the piano: the eyes were the hammers, the color is the keyboard, and the soul is the piano and strings. Similar to music, which is not just jumbles of notes, Kandinsky’s works were not just amalgamations of non distinct shapes and colors. They were carefully arranged musical elements, precisely proportioned to evoke the maximum aesthetic and emotional response from the viewer.” (Wikipaintings)
