Wassily Kandinsky (1866-1944) was a Russian painter credited as being among the first to truly venture into abstract art. He persisted in expressing his internal world of abstraction despite negative criticism from his peers. He veered away from painting that could be viewed as representational in order to express his emotions, leading to his unique use of colour and form. Although his works received heavy censure at the time, in later years they would become greatly influential.
Wassily Kandinsky (1866-1944), whose works are contained in this book, not only practised art but also wrote on it extensively. He explored the theoretical aspects of the abstract art to which he ascribed, often drawing on his own work for examples, perhaps in an attempt to defend it by showing the care and thought he put into his art.
