Painting description

The spectator was totally shocked by this abrupt transition from apocalyptic emotions of the “Composition VII” to geometric rhythms of the “Composition VIII”. The painting was created 10 years later in 1923, so it reflected the influence of suprematism and constructivism adopted by Kandinsky in Russian and Bauhaus.
The painter shifted from color to form here. Now the composition is created by means of forms: a large dark circle in the upper left part and a net of adjoint lines in the right part; a yellow circle with a bluish halo and a blue one with a yellow halo etc. Source:
