It is part of a series of paintings in which Kandinsky attempts to explore the relationship between music and art.
Kandinsky considered Composition 8 as a high point in his post war achievements. It was his first major work to enter Solomon R. Guggenheim’s collection.
In contrast to objective art, Kandinsky uses shapes and colors to evoke emotions within the viewer.
