The painting "Autumn Landscape with Boats" was painted by V. Kandinsky in 1908.
The artist preferred to write his creations from a living nature, but, paying more attention not to clarity and drawing the image, he attached more importance to color and contrast.
In this picture, Kandinsky depicted the evening marina, with boats attached to it, and the coast in bright lights against the sunset, almost night.
The boats are drawn more clearly, the artist depicted chiaroscuro due to the play of castrato of different colors, combining blue, pink and yellow.
The water has a familiar blue color for the viewer, on the surface of which lights from the shore and boat outlines are reflected.
The shore looks no longer clear, on it there are only a few silhouettes of tall trees, the mountains in the background are dark blue and the concrete slabs of the pier: pink, yellow and blue.
The rest of the coast is filled with yellow and red short strokes, the advanced light of burning lanterns.
The sky is not familiar, even for sunset and dusk, green, blue, white and blue.
In this picture, as in many others, the artist again adheres to his theory of color. He believes that each color has its own dynamic character and differently affects the susceptibility of the image by the viewer.
He adhered to the fact that each color is self-valuable and its harmonious combinations can express all emotionality and convey spiritual value without depicting a real object. The artist argued that each color chord should itself clearly express the association with the content of the mystical and musical character.
Today, the painting Autumn Landscape with Boats »by Vasily Vasilyevich Kandinsky is in the Merzbacher Collection in Switzerland.
