Katrina "Gravity" Vasily Kandinsky wrote in 1935.

Against a dark background of the picture, the artist depicted a composition of clear lines, circles and squares. He marked the center of the canvas with a kind of axis from one horizontal line and several vertical ones. In the upper left corner of the canvas, he arranged a square marked out on many small squares of different colors, combining the shades of the palette of brown, pink, red, gray and black.

A little lower, on the same side of the picture on the axis, he plotted a circle, and the intersection of the horizontal and vertical lines divided it into four spectra: blue, red and two shades of orange.

Another circle is drawn in the center, which has two colors: the main one is pale lilac, and the black circle in the core. It is located in the lower part of the canvas so that its top is crossed by axial lines, and the left part is superimposed on the red spectrum of a small circle. On the left side, on it are drawn seven rectangles of different sizes and colors: blue, pink, red and black. The largest red rectangle is slightly superimposed on its lower part.

On the other side of the vertical line from the rectangles is a large square, divided into small squares of blue, blue, red, yellow, pink, purple, brown and black.

Above this square, at the intersection of the centerlines, there is another circle consisting of two parts of different tones of green.

In the center, above a large circle, the artist depicted the intersection of four oval lines of red, pink and black.

The whole composition is fully consistent with the Kandinsky color theory that each color has its own dynamic characteristic.
