Wassily Kandinsky is thought to be one of the first artists to create modern abstract art. The Russian painter did not take up painting until the age of 30, but quickly became the key member of the avant-garde Expressionist movement of the early 20th century.
He lived, painted and taught in Germany, Switzerland and Sweden before finally settling in France, where he would live out the rest of his days. Wassily Kandinsky artwork is known for its complexity and spirituality, he painted to bring out people’s emotions rather than to capture reality. And that is what makes his work so fascinating!
Wassily Kandinsky was particularly inspired by music, making musical Kandinsky paintings the perfect gift choice for music lovers in your life. So dive head first into the creative world of Kandinsky art – who knows where the journey may take you?
