Wassily Kandinsky, Painter and Designer
Wassily Kandinsky was born in Moscow in 1866. He grew up in a
bourgois, cultured family and learned to play the piano and the
cello. In 1886 he began to study law and economics at the Moscow
University. After passing his exams he started a teaching career at
the Moscow Faculty of Law. He had many interests and apparently a great gift to teach himself
different skills. In 1895 Kandinsky saw an exhibition of French
impressionists in Moscow with paintings of Monet and others. He was at first confused and would later described how upset he
was about Monet's painting The haystack. He thought that the painter had no right to paint things in a way
that made it difficult to recognize the subject. In 1896, at the
age of thirty, he decided to start a new career as an artist and
went to Munich in Southern Germany. He enrolled at the Academy of Fine Arts for four years until 1900.
Der Blaue Reiter
The art of Kandinsky established itself rather fast from 1903 on
through many exhibitions in Europe. In 1911 he formed together with other Expressionist painters the
group Der Blaue Reiter. Other members of the group were the Swiss
painter Paul Klee, Franz Marc, August Macke, Gabriele Mnter, Alexei
von Jawlensky and Alfred Kubin. Kandinsky was the leading head of
the group together with Franz Marc. His dominant position was not
always to the delight of the other members.
Kandinsky became the theorist of abstract painting. In 1910 he
created his first abstract work - a watercolor. In 1912 he
published a book on the theory of abstraction. The Blue Rider had only a short life due to the outbreak of World
