Artists portrait of Wassily Kandinsky

Wassily Kandinsky

  • Born: 4. December 1866 in Moskau
  • Died: 13. December 1944
Born on December 4th, 1866 in Moscow as the son of a tea trader, Vassily Kandinsky is considered as one of the major forerunners of abstract painting. After graduating from Moscow University in economics and law he gave his undivided attention to painting and moved to Munich in 1986. After learning under the well-known drawingroom painter Franz von Stork, where he met Paul Klee for the first time in 1900, he established his own "Phalanx"-painting school, and step by step freed himself in the following years from the restrictions of form. He was first able to develop his own language of colours during his Murnauer phase (I908-1914), where he was loosely involved in exhibitions and projects of the artistic group "The Blue Rider" revolving around August Macke, Franz Marc, Gabriele Münter and Alexej von Jawlensky. After these colourful explosive improvisations he then came into contact with the Russian constructivists between 1914-1921. This was followed by years of teaching at the Bauhaus (1322-1933) where his best known works in a structurally and strictly composed style emerged. Not until his later Parisian phase from 1933, did he again develop more playful and generous compositions, which strongly remind us of biological forms and elements, the so-called view through a microscope. Kandinsky died on December 13th 1944 in Neuilly-sur-Seine.
