Wassily Kandinsky, "Dance Curves: On the Dances of Palucca" (1926) Dancer and choreographer Gret Palucca (1902-1993) was a former student of Mary Wigman, the leading figure in German Expressionist dance. In 1925, Palucca opened her own dance studio in Dresden and developed close contacts with various Bauhaus instructors, many of whom greatly admired her dance style.
"Delicate Tension" (1923), by Wassily Kandinsky was executed at the Bauhaus during the school’s most rationalist period under van Doesburg from 1923 - 1925. During these years the initial Expressionistic style evolved towards greater commitment to the Constructivist aesthetic which was spreading internationally. The geometric shapes found in his works from this period, are the circle &the triangle, which he considered to be “the 2 primary, most strongly contrasting plane figures”.
