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.

“Every work of art is the child of its age and, in many cases, the mother of our emotion. It follows that each period of culture produces an art of its own which can never be repeated.”

1909-1910: Kandinsky founds the Munich New Artists ’ Association (Die Neue Künstlervereinigung München). Kandinsky spends autumn and winter of 1909 in Russia, where he exhibits fifty-two works at the “International” Salon in Odessa and participates in an exhibition of the Knave of Diamonds group.

1911: Together with Franz Marc, Kandinsky founds The Blue Rider ( Der Blaue Reiter ).

1914: At the outbreak of the First World War, he separates from Münter and goes back to Russia through Switzerland, Italy, and the Balkans. The couple ’ s last meeting, in Stockholm during the winter of 1915-1916, marks the end of their relationship.
1917: Kandinsky marries Nina Andreewskaya, aged 17. His political environment is shaped by the Russian Revolution. The Soviets are looking for Russian avant-garde artists.

1940: After the German invasion of France, Kandinsky flees to the Pyrenees.
13 December 1944: Kandinsky dies in Neuilly-sur-Seine, France.

Not long ago it seemed that the 20 th century had not only begun with Kandinsky, but ended with him as well. But no matter how often his name is cited by the zealots of new and fashionable interpretations, the artist has passed into history and belongs to the past and to the future, perhaps to a greater degree than to the present. So much has been written and said about Kandinsky.
