Kandinsky's painting Composition VIII (1923) has been adapted to the surface of a ceramic vase in which one can display a beautiful flower bouquet. The vase is an oval shape with details on all sides. We see an interplay of geometric form, line, and rhythmic color, like a musical composition as interpreted through linear abstraction.
The versatile modern artist, Kandinsky, is known as a great theorist of abstract art. The depicting of recognizable objects hampered his search for spirituality. Inspired by Schonberg, he developed his influential sound/color theory in which each color speaks its own language and has its own shape and soul. He combines colors to form a harmony which creates in a vibration of the soul in .
This vase is part of an art vase collection called Silhouette d'Art. It is crafted from fine ceramic and decorated with a famous masterpiece painting. Vases are a cooperative effort between two European fine art manufacturers -- Parastone, a Dutch Art Company, and John Beswick, a British ceramic company. The famous art masterpieces are selected for their visual beauty and then applied to a special shaped vase design with a cut edge to enhance a design element from the painting.
