Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Russian painter Wassily Kandinsky is generally regarded as an originator of abstract painting and one of the most important innovators in modern art, both as an artist and as a theorist. He only started painting when he was 30 after training as a lawyer in Moscow, suddenly abandoning his home andprofession and traveling to Munich to study art. His talent quickly tested the constraints of art school and he began exploring his own ideas. Beginning in 1903, his work was exhibited throughout Europe and often caused controversy among the public, critics and his contemporaries. Kandinsky's unrelenting quest for new forms produced works of a great many styles. His earlier works, both abstract and figurative, are characterized by a romantic superabundance of brilliant colors and complex patterns. In the 1920's, his work took him to the extremes of geometric abstraction, with sharply etched outlines and clear patterns. In very late works, Kandinsky blended the free, intuitive image of his earlier years with these geometric forms to create a more elegant, beautifully balanced style. Accompanied by spectacular images of the artist's greatest work.
