Over the course of his artistic career, Wassily Kandinsky (1866–1944) transformed not only his own style, but the course of art history. From early figurative and landscape painting, he went on to pioneer a spiritual, emotive, rhythmic use of colour and lines, and is today credited with creating the first purely abstract piece of art.
This book presents key Kandinsky works to introduce his repertoire of vivid colours, forms and feelings. Tracing the artist’s radical stylistic development, it shows how one painter’s progression paved the way for generations of abstract expression to come.
