Transcript

  • 1. Wassily Kandinsky (1866-1944)
  • 2.   Kandinsky was a Russian painter, whose exploration of abstraction made him one of the most important innovators of modern art.
  • 3.
    • Around 1913 he began working on paintings that came to be considered the first totally abstract works in modern art; they made no reference to objects of the physical world and were inspired by music.
  • 4. After World War I (1914-1918), Kandinsky's abstractions became increasingly geometric in form. Many works were comprised solely of lines, circles, arcs, and other simple geometric shapes.
  • 5. Kandinsky was one of the most influential artists of his generation. As one of the first explorers of "pure“ abstraction, Kandinsky paved the way for abstract expressionism.
