  • Houses at Murnau (1909) by Wassily Kandinsky £33.00£41.00

    Wassily Kandinsky expressed all the colors he saw during his trip to Bavaria through his artwork. The composition and use of colors remind viewers of the materiality of Post-Impressionists like Paul Gaugin. The colors in Kandinsky’s work are predominantly primary, including yellow, blue, and red, with only a few light touches of green. There are no subtle variations in the colors, as Kandinsky was more interested in the tonal differences. He used chromatic breaks to define the forms by contrasting them with the blue he used for the shadows.

  • Colorful Life (1907) by Wassily Kandinsky £33.00£41.00

    Emanuel Lewenstein, a Dutch art collector, acquired Wassily Kandinsky’s “Colorful Life” immediately after its completion in 1907. Following his demise, his widow, Hedwig, entrusted the painting to the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam for preservation. Decades later, on March 3, 2017, three Lewenstein heirs initiated a lawsuit in New York City against Bayerische Landesbank, claiming the bank wrongfully possessed the artwork, now estimated to be worth $80 million. The legal claim argued that the painting was illicitly sold in 1940, amid Nazi Germany’s occupation of the Netherlands, in a broader campaign targeting Jewish property, contravening international law.

  • Abstract Trio, 1923 – Paul Klee £39.00£62.00

    It is possible that the work in question is a self-portrait of the artist, Paul Klee. Klee was known for making many puppets for his son, and this particular figure appears to have been inspired by one of those puppets. The figure was created using a process called oil transfer, which is similar to making a carbon copy. Klee used a sharp instrument to draw the outline of the figure on a sheet of paper that had been painted with a special type of oil paint on the underside. The black smudges on the paper are believed to be from where Klee’s hand rested while he was working on the piece.

  • Comedians’ Handbill – Paul Klee £39.00£45.00

    According to the motto “the medium is the message,” Klee created a handbill on a sheet of newspaper that he covered with caramel-colored gouache. He made corrections to the figures’ outlines and filled the gaps between them with bone-colored gouache. Klee used touches of white and pink gouache to add life to the handbill.

These signs, which appear as boldly as an advertisement, symbolize syncopated movement, frolicking creatures, and stick figures.
