Composition XX

Abstract composition in which Hans Mattis-Teutsch uses spiritual interpretation of colour and symbolic forms and that reflects his confidence in their power of expression. Leaves and petals similar to burning flames create a play of shapes and colours orbiting around the nucleus. The colour range is vivid and diverse, from coloured white to various shades of yellow, red and blue. Representative work in the abstract stage of Hans Mattis-Teutsch’s creation.
