Lyrique

Wassily Kandinsky returned several times to the image of the horse and rider to symbolise the struggle for a new art. Lyrique exists in the form of an oil painting and an engraving on wood.

This work appeared in his « musical album » Sounds, a book of poetry and wood engravings. It was also reproduced in the Blaue Reiter almanac published by Kandinsky and Marc in 1912.
