Glass half dome paperweight with image by Kandinsky's modern art painting of Mild Tension (1923). The colors are varied yellow, white, black, and assorted others.
The versatile artist, Kandinsky, is known as a great theorist of abstract art. The depicting of recognizable objects hampered his search for spirituality. Inspired by Schönberg, 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 "a vibration of the soul".
