•Describe two (2) color paintings by different artists that you believe represent the following
quote by Kandinsky on the subject of color in art. Justify your response. From
Concerning the Spiritual in Art: “If you let your eye stray over a palette of colors,
you experience two things. In the first place you receive a purely physical
effect, namely the eye itself is enchanted by the beauty and other qualities of
color. […] These are physical sensations, limited in duration. They are
superficial, too, and leave no lasting impression behind if the soul remains
closed. And so we come to the second result of looking at colors: their
psychological effect. They produce a correspondent spiritual vibration, and it
is only as a step towards this spiritual vibration that the physical impression
is of importance. … Generally speaking, color directly influences the
soul.” – Wassily Kandinsky.
