Characteristic features of this work are: precision of the composition, bold forms, and a modest color palette. They represent Kandinsky’s steady progression toward geometric abstraction: this process, inspired by constructivist tendencies in the ultra-modern Bauhaus and the post-revolutionary Russia where the artist lived in 1914-1922, continues throughout his “second German period.” These were the years of reassessment of issues and development, studying and teaching, years of work on his book entitled “Point and Line to Plane” (1926), in which Kandinsky continued his theoretical explorations in art.
