Kandinsky Composition VI magnet. Oil painting on canvas from 1913. Russian painter and art theorist Wassily Kandinsky created some of the most visually turbulent and beautiful works of the twentieth century. Composition VI stands as one of Kandinsky’s most fascinating paintings due to its vibrant use of reds, purples, greens, blues, and yellows. Kandinsky claimed the painted represented his attempt to invoke a flood or deluge. A great gift for fans of Wassily Kandinsky, abstract art, and Russian painters.
