The audience was quite shocked by the transition from the apocalyptic emotion of Composition VII to the geometric rhythm of the painter and to a certain extent it reflects of Suprematism and Constructivism assimilated by Kandinsky in Russia and in the Bauhaus. Design on both sides.

In 1926, the most important theoretical work of the painter "Point and Line to Plane" was published. Of Course, most of the painter's canvases of this period are the practical expression of his theoretical ideals. However, this is not a literal implementation, but rather intuitive and poetic interpretation. Kandinsky as a writer was consistent and methodical, but when working on canvas with figures and colours he was becoming sensual and impulsive. And of course, he hoped that the audience would perceive his work emotionally, too. 

Kandinsky aimed to formulate an abstract language that would cause strong emotions in the audience to a large extent the same way as it does the music. "From itself, even if completely abstract... has its own inner sound," he wrote. Kandinsky was looking for a universal law of harmony in the visual arts, which must be present in the center for each creation, and this mystical belief was reinforced by the convincing inner strength of the painter. 

Composition VIII was one of the first paintings which were bought by Solomon R. Guggenheim. In 1930 Guggenheim visited Bauhaus where he bought several paintings of Kandinsky. It was the beginning of a large collection that is now exhibited in the Guggenheim Museum in New York.
