White Cloud


Female Rider in Hills, Female Rider and Blue Lions, White Cloud and With Fruits are painted in oil on glass ‒ a technique dating back to the traditions of Old German folk art, which Wassily Kandinsky studied in Murnau in the late 1900s and returned to at the end of the 1910s. The most remarkable features of these works are its naive narrativeness, deliberate rejection of real scales and perspective, bright and flat painting of the figures and objects, equality between the major and minor details and the strongly expressed folkloric basis.
