Vous le ferrez sur l’épreuve de cette toile (les rands n’appartient pas au tableau!). Ne l’oubliez pas s. v. b.! Ayez la complaisance de faire envyoer un exemplaire du cahier immédiatement après la parition à M. Zervos: il voulait faire une notice sur ce cahier dans le prochain Cahier de sa Revue. Je regrette que les reproductions des grandes toiles (‚Komposition 4’ et ‚Komp. 6’) sont si petites: Komp. 6 a trois métres de longeur! [...]“. – As critic Andre de Ridder prepared the July 1933 Kandinsky issue of his periodical ‚Selection’, the artist remained in Berlin to wrap up business as the Bauhaus closed. Facing constant accusations of teaching ‚un-German, degenerate art’ and fostering Communism, the school could no longer function under the pressure of the Nazi Party. Kandinsky reviewed de Ridder’s pieces from afar and passed them along to his friend and future biographer Will Grohmann. Two decades after their creation, his Compositions continued to spark discussion; his abstract style of painting based on the nonrepresentational properties of color and form, intended to create the same emotional impact that music did, challenged the art world both theoretically and aesthetically. The artist requests that de Ridder send a copy to publisher Christian Zervos, and suggests contacting prominent gallery owners Erhard Weyhe and John Becker, along with Galka Scheyer, the American representative for Die Blaue Vier (a group of Bauhaus artists – Kandinsky, Klee, Jawlensky, and Feininger – who exhibited and lectured together) to secure orders. This letter, with an abundance of important references to modern art figures as well as its discussion of his famous Compositions, holds spectacular content regarding the groundbreaking artist’s life and career..
