Since the early Christian era, Biblical themes have delighted artists from several different moments of the art history. Among religious subjects, The Last Judgement has always been a prominent choice and has been represented by several relevant artists such as Michelangelo and the famed Bosch triptych. Often, Jesus is represented on the piece, deciding on the souls of humanity. When Kandinsky makes his interpretation of this biblical passage, in this 1912 oil, he chooses to do so in vibrant colors and organic black lines that form unidentified shapes. The lack of representational forms leave the painting entirely open for interpretation, and at the same time, it is vivid and shocking.
There is a concentration of black lines in the center right of the painting. The mix between black lines and shapes open to interpretation forming a diversified group of small forms, both organic and a little geometric (like the small triangle the lines form). These lines are heavily irregular and run all along the painting. At some points, it is very thin and fragile. In other spots, it gets thicker and thicker to the point where it forms a shape.On the right border, there are some curved lines. Some of them bound a shape and are filled with colors, like the yellow shape on the top or the blue shape that is just above the black structure on the bottom. Other lines are loosely dancing through the painting. These lines are put together by a psychedelic background of shades of yellow, red and blue. The dominant color of the background is blue. The color is spread all over the painting in different shades, more saturated on the borders and lighter in the middle.
The second color in weight is yellow. Over the blue that spreads all across the canvas, stains of yellow are distributed. Eventually, the yellow parts respect the black lines and follow along with them. In other regions, the color simply spreads and runs freely. The red color is placed mostly on the corners and fades as it reaches the middle of the painting. The colors are eventually watered down, and it’s possible to see that they overlap each other, suggesting that the green and orange spots are just one color overlapping the other, as opposed to a new color on the palette.
