Description:
Wassily Kandinsky (1866-1944) Zeichnung für 'Punkt und Linie zu Fläche' (Drawing for 'Point and Line to Plane') signed with the artist's monogram and dated 'VK25' (lower left) pen and India ink on paper 13 ½ x 8 5/8 in. (34.3 x 21.8 cm.) Executed in 1925 'If a force coming from outside moves the point in any direction, the first type of line comes about, where the direction embarked on remains unchanged, and the line has a tendency to run straight on to infinity. This is the straight line, which as regards its tension thus represents the infinite possibility of movement in its most concise form.' (W. Kandinsksy in Punkt und Linie zu Fläche, 1926). Drawn in 1925, Zeichnung für 'Punkt und Linie zu Fläche' (Study for \\\‘Point and Line to Plane\\\’) is the most important of the black-and-white drawings that Wassily Kandinsky executed to illustrate his treatise of the same name, Punkt und Linie zu Fläche. The essay, published in 1926, represents the summation of the artist's methods and teachings during the period he spent at the Bauhaus in Weimar, when he sought to use geometric abstraction as a means of expressing a spiritual dimension in art. These drawings are amongst the most analytical and refined in the artist's abstract œuvre, and exemplify the artist's gradual move away from the free flowing, irregular lines and shapes of his earlier years, towards a purer form of geometric abstraction. The present work, that Kandinsky himself described as \\\‘inner relationship between complex of straight lines and curve [left-right] for the picture Black Triangle\\\’ (Wassily Kandinsky quoted in V. Endicott Barnett, Kandinsky Drawings, vol. I, Munich, 2006, p. 306), is directly related to the 1925 painting Schwarzes Dreieck, today in the Museum Boymans van Beuningens, Rotterdam. Dispensing with colour, in the present drawing each line and shape holds an emotional significance, and within the abstraction, movement and rhythm is created from the relationship between the geometric forms.

Description:
Kandinsky, Wassily KLÄNGE. MUNICH: R. PIPER, [1912–13] 4to (11 1/8 x 11 in.; 283 x 279 mm). 56 woodcuts by Kandinsky, (24 full page, 12 color); light browning at edges of first few leaves. Publisher's quarter cloth, spine gilt lettered, red paper boards with gilt-stamped designs after Kandinsky; spine somewhat faded, some wear and soiling, narrow 4-inch strip of abrasion on front cover with minor loss to gilt-stamping. Modern brick-red buckram clamshell-case, printed paper labels. Literature The Artist and the Book 138; Carey and Griffiths, The Print in Germany 1880–1933, no. 240; Castleman, Century 144; Manet to Hockney 31; Roethal, Kandinsky 96–141; Rosenwald, Vision of a Collector 69. Catalogue Note First edition of "one of the earliest artist's books to contain nonrepresentational art" (Rosenwald). Copy 284 of 300, signed by Kandinsky. This influential modern work is both visually appealing and textually intriguing: an admixture of color, sound and meaning. Although it was the first illustrated book of the newly formed German Expressionist movement, it was also embraced by the Dadaists. The texts were performed at the legendary Cabaret Voltaire in Zurich. A combination of prose poems and abstract and semi-abstract images, Klänge is "one of the most beautiful books of the twentieth century" (Carey and Griffiths). A very attractive copy.
