Upward (1929)  by Wassily Kandinsky

Upward

1929

Geometric abstraction

Oil on cardboard

Venice. Italy. Peggy Guggenheim Collection

This work is also symbolic: a whole composition consisting of geometric shapes, in accordance with its title, offers us “energetically vertical” interpretation, and the shapes reminding the letter “E” in the bottom and the upper right corner, can fairly well be an original reference to the German title of the picture (“Empor”).
