Painted in 1937, this painting illustrates an important chapter in the history of twentieth-century art and reveals Kandinsky at the height of his powers. In 1933, Kandinsky moved to Paris and the complex abstraction compositions he painted in the city during the 1930s – Tensions calmées chief amongst them – are considered the culmination of his artistic ideals.
