Gorge Improvisation by Wassily Kandinsky

That is beautiful which is produced by the inner need, which springs from the soul. –Wassily Kandinsky

Wassily Kandinsky (1866 – 1944) was born in Moscow and is credited for pioneering pure abstract painting.  During the cultural revolution in Russia, his artistic views were rebuffed by his peers.   Kandinsky left for Germany and taught at the Bauhaus School of Art and Architecture until the Nazis closed down the school.  He then moved to France where he later became a French citizen.  Kandinsky believed it was his spiritual duty to create paintings from what he called “internal necessity”.
