Eliza was our scribe. She noted that Kandinsky's paintings all showed the city of Moscow during the Russian revolution, one painted from a high building, looking down. They had vibrant colours, were full of excitement and the last one was nearly abstract (the shapes were similar and with fewer details). Then we saw how Mondrian did a fairly realistic painting of a tree, then another of the same tree that was bolder and more abstract. Rothko - a highly emotional man - made abstract paintings, one called 'Four Darks in Deep Red' which seemed to express his sad feelings, or emotions.
As usual, we had to much to say in only 20 minutes! But we will find out more in the next meeting in March.
