The artist saw a path of the new art as a necessary transition from the depiction of external shapes of the world to their inner content. The master sought to express his feelings by artistic means rather than by objective forms through a particular subject matter. He achieved a certain emotional response of the audience using only colors, lines and abstract shapes. The narrative content, which is an integral feature of figurative art, is missing here. Instead of the usual genres, Kandinsky singles out impression, improvisation and composition. Impression is an expression of direct impressions of the exterior or "external nature." Improvisation is an expression of inner processes that occurs suddenly, mostly unconsciously. It is an impression of "inner nature." Composition is a synthesis of impressions of "external" and "internal" nature. Improvisation 7 is one of the artist's early works. Figurative forms here seem to dissolve in the movement of planes and lines that are matched in colors in a very elaborate way.

This famous piece helps the viewer connect with their inner feelings, as Wassily Kandinsky has used his interior ideas to inspire this true piece of art which, in turn, forces him to leave reality behind. These paintings belong in a different reality, one not related to the phenominal world we exist in.
