About the Item: The present woodcut print comes from 'Klänge (Sounds),' a book of original graphics and poetry by Wassily Kandinsky. This first edition was released in an edition of 300, each book signed and numbered by the artist. The title of the album and this particular print, 'Improvisation,' demonstrated Kandinsky's interest in music and how abstract musical forms could be translated into images on a two-dimensional surface. This particular composition is difficult to read, but through the abstraction, one can make out various figures and a landscape beyond. Signed with encircled 'K' in the block, lower right (from the book, signed in ink, ed. 117/300). Framed to conservation standards using 100 percent acid free archival materials including a silk-lined matting with 1/4 inch bevel, museum glass, and a gold-gilded moulding. Ref. Roethel 124
