Bach in Arts - Hommage a Bach

Memo-2479

Type:

Bach Painting

Title:

Fugue in Rot / Fugue in Red

Description:

One of Kandinsky’s close associates at the Bauhaus was the artist and teacher of painting and elementary design theory, Paul Klee. An accomplished violinist, Klee was a keen player of Bach. The art of the fugue, for which Bach had ultimately brought to maturity, became the inspirational structure for many of the visual artists of the early 20th century and Klee was indeed an avid practitioner with some of his earlier works taking direct inspiration from this complex musical form - ‘Fugue in Red’, 1921 and ‘In the Style of Bach’, 1919. Whereas Kandinsky drew comparison between colour and sound, Klee developed more a relation between structure and composition of the image through musical metaphor. If we take ‘Fugue in Red’ for example, the repeated motif and its visual dimension through use of shade, clearly express the idea of polyphony and resonance. Each motif alluding to instruments of a musical orchestration.
