Painting - Oil on Canvas (100.5 x 110.6 cm) January-June 1922

Vasily Kandinsky described his works from the early 20s as his "cold" period with the prevalence of geometric shapes over colour.

Shapes that, as in this table, seem to float above an inclined plane.

Kandinsky mixes natural forms, such as stylized mackerel and purely geometric shapes that build space while scratching it.

The white cross inside its chequerboard is leaning, with signs and symbols mostly presented diagonally, no horizontal and vertical line from this universe.

We are in front of objects, of symbols floating in space, freed from all gravity.
