Summary
"One of the first artists to break away from figurative art to abstractionism, Kandinsky (1866-1914) is considered by many to be the father of modern art. While his paintings are well known and widely studied, it was in watercolors that Kandinsky first began to explore the possibilities of pure abstraction. Nearly 200 rarely seen gems are highlighted here, ranging from vibrantly arresting works of the 1910s to dramatic works on dark backgrounds from the last years of his life. The essays concentrate on Kandinsky's early career, on his circle of colleagues, on crucial phases of his development (Phalanx, Neue Kunstlervereinigung, Blue Rider, Bauhaus), and on the myriad allusions to recognizable objects and creatures that pervade his oeuvre. The superbly reproduced illustrations (174 in color, 69 in black and white) will delight Kandinsky enthusiasts." -- publisher's information
