Kandinsky Throw Pillows are a colorful expressionism, and pioneering work in abstract painting, Russian artist Wassily Kandinsky was also a prominent art theorist. He explored deeply into the meaning behind art, likening color to music (a parallel obvious to him; he had synesthesia), and art to prophecy, seeking after the numinous and spiritual, deeply subjective experiences that art can evoke. It is in this way that he most influenced the contemporary world of art.
Kandinsky portrayed the soul as concentric circles, circles within circles. Consider the circles as birth and rebirth. Contemporary Throw Pillows inspired by Kandinsky give depth and color to our homes. High quality embroidery work in hand-dyed wool gives this art pillow a vibrancy we can feel emotionally and physically. Guests will appreciate the color and culture provided by the Kandinsky Pillows.
