The picture was painted in oil on canvas in 1919, during the dawn of the creative career of Vasily Kandinsky. Art historians compare the “White Oval” with the music embodied in the picture, imbued with the state of mind of the author, his deep feelings. This opinion is justified, because the artist, indeed, considered his work as a tandem of color and music. With each of his works, Kandinsky tried to evoke a feeling in the viewer that was proportionate to the feelings that arose from listening to a musical work.

This image is the key in the artist’s work, as a visual reflection of the transition from abstract impressionism to a systematic rational abstract art.

An oval of imperfect shape is depicted on a black, as if marble background. Background plays a special role, highlighting and complementing the plot. If you look from the other side, an image of a certain screen is created in which the composition is formed. Each form of composition is presented as a spatial perspective. The effect of "picture in picture" is created. The composition is based on a black axis around which other components of the picture are grouped. The axis, as if overlapping other elements, goes to the forefront.

Black lines located diagonally give balance to all elements that are oppositely directed.

If you look at the "White Oval" with a general look, then there is an association with outlines similar to a human heart. An element of the composition, located in the lower left corner, stretched upward, looks like the phalanx of the finger of the hand with which someone wants to touch a vital organ.

The forms of Kandinsky’s work are symbolic. The master opens up an objective-intellectual position to the world, expressing his attitude to the revolution and civil war in the country.
