  • A man who can move mountains Thus Franz Marc described his friend and colleague Wassily Kandinsky, who revolutionized the art of our century with his ideas of a new pictorial language.For as founder of abstract painting Kandinsky released art from its traditional duty namely, to provide a copy of the visible world Although, in the early years of the twentieth century A man who can move mountains Thus Franz Marc described his friend and colleague Wassily Kandinsky, who revolutionized the art of our century with his ideas of a new pictorial language.For as founder of abstract painting Kandinsky released art from its traditional duty namely, to provide a copy of the visible world Although, in the early years of the twentieth century, there were other artists similarly experimenting with the dissolution of the object and the promotion of color and form to means of expression in their own right, Kandinsky was the most logical and consistent in his pursuit of abstract means of expression He made it his life s work to carry painting up to and over the threshold of abstraction, whereby his artistic activities were always accompanied by theoretical reflections and insights.

    One thought on “Kandinsky”

    1. I read this book for a book challenge read a book by/about your favorite artist. And Kandinsky is mine I love Composition VIII :) It makes me happy.So this book really interested me, because it chronicles his journey from art that mimicked nature (like Old Town II (1902)) to works that are totally abstract, like Composition VIII (1923), Several Circles (1926), or Two Green Points (1935), and beyond. (I'm not as fond of his later Parisian stuff, though Two Green Points is lovely)I was thinking ab [...]

    2. I decided to read this book because Kandinsky was, is and will be one of the many exponents of abstract art and some of my works are inspired by his art. Also, I wanted to know more of his wonderful works. I recommend it if you would like to know about Kandinsky's evolution because it shows every period of his transformation.

    3. Some artists translate well into photographic plates, I don't think Kadinsky does. Having seen an exhibition of his works with their glowing colours and the sense of depth in his abstracts, I think that the art and architectural publisher Taschen has nevertheless done a very good job indeed. A beautiful book to own.

    4. The photographs were well done, in terms of lighting to capture the intense colors in most of the work :) The writing was about as comprehensible as possible when talking about a painter whose art was largely inspired by synaesthesia. Good value too.

    5. Kandinsky was possessed by the need to express himself through art. I wanted to know more about him because one of my favorite artists, G. O'Keefe, was influenced by him. It was inspirational to understand more about both of these artists.

    6. The best Artist ever. I've always loved his work but with this book everything became clear. New paintigs, new facts, new passions. I just simply love Wassily Kandinsky :D
