There has been absolute confidence of searching for illustration; a concord were manage, and that was once sufficient. after all colour-music isn't any new notion. that's to claim makes an attempt were made to play compositions in color, by way of flashes and harmonies. [Footnote: Cf. “Colour Music,” by way of A. Wallace Rimington. Hutchinson. 6s. web. ] additionally song has been interpreted in color. yet i don't recognize of any past try to paint, with none connection with tune, compositions which shall have at the spectator an impact completely divorced from consultant organization. Kandinsky refers to makes an attempt to color in colour-counterpoint. yet that could be a assorted topic, in that it's the borrowing from one paintings by means of one other of only technical tools, with no past impulse from religious sympathy. One is confronted then with the conflicting claims of Picasso and Kandinsky to the placement of precise chief of non-representative paintings. Picasso’s admirers hail him, simply as this creation hails Kandinsky, as a visible musician. The equipment and ideas of every rival are so various that the name can't be accorded to either. In his booklet, Kandinsky states his opinion of Cubism and its deadly weak point, and historical past is going to help his rivalry. The starting place of Cubism in Cezanne, in a structural paintings that owes its very life to topic, makes its declare to natural emotionalism appear untenable. feelings aren't composed of strata and conflicting pressures. as soon as abandon fact and the geometrical imaginative and prescient turns into summary arithmetic. it kind of feels to me that Picasso stocks a Futurist mistakes while he endeavours to harmonize one merchandise of fact — a host, a button, a couple of capital letters — with a surrounding charisma of angular projections. There needs to be a clash of impressions, which vary basically in caliber. One pattern of recent track is in the direction of realism of sound. young ones cry, canine bark, plates are damaged. Picasso techniques an identical target from the other way. it truly is as if he have been attempting to paintings from realism to track. The waste of time is, to my brain, both whole in either instances. the ability of song to provide expression with out the aid of illustration is its noblest ownership. No portray has ever had this sort of invaluable energy. Kandinsky is striving to provide it that strength, and end up what's not less than the logical analogy among color and sound, among line and rhythm of beat. Picasso makes little use of color, and confines himself purely to 1 sequence of line results — these because of conflicting angles. So his objective is smaller and extra constrained than Kandinsky’s whether it truly is as moderate. yet since it has no longer thoroughly deserted realism yet makes use of for the portray of feeling a structural imaginative and prescient based for its price at the organization of fact, simply because in so doing it attempts to make the easiest of 2 worlds, there turns out little desire for it of redemption in both. As has been acknowledged above, Picasso and Kandinsky make an attractive parallel, in that they have got built the paintings respectively of Cezanne and Gauguin, in an analogous course. at the selection of Picasso’s failure or luck rests the excellence among Cezanne and Gauguin, the realist and the symbolist, the painter of externals and the painter of non secular feeling.
