In musical terms, a capriccio is a short, lively, free-form piece of music. Modernist Burton Kramer’s Capriccio 2 envisions shapes and colours inspired by beautiful music. In this way Kramer’s work is much like the 20thcentury European painter Wassily Kandinsky who was renowned for his experiments with colour and music. “My paintings are music made visual; they deal with rhythms, syncopations, tonalities and moods. Their primary messages are sensory, and not literal.” Burton Kramer He is one of Canada's most influential and gifted graphic designers.
