Wassily Kandinsky – A Russian painter and Art Theorist

Wassily Kandinsky was born in Moscow on December 4, 1866, to musical parents Lidia Ticheeva and Vasily Silvestrovich Kandinsky, a tea merchant. When Kandinsky was about five years old, his parents divorced, and he moved to Odessa to live with his aunt, where he learned to play the piano and cello in grammar school and study drawing with a coach. Even as a child, he had an intimate experience with art. the works of his childhood reveals specific color combinations. In Munich, Kandinsky joined a prestigious private painting school, moving to the Munich Academy of Arts. But much of his study was self-directed, and he was a self-made painter.

Moved places for art

 He began with conventional themes and art forms. Still, he was also forming theories derived from intense spiritual study and informed by an intense relationship between music and color. In 1914, after World War I, Kandinsky returned to Moscow, where he did not find much inspiration in the art world. In 1921, he then returned to Munich, where he taught at the Bauhaus school of architecture until it was closed by the Nazis in 1933. Wassily was an active art theorist and published several books on art theory. Also, he developed a complex and deeply emotional theory about the ability of colors and shapes to represent sound and express human emotion. He eventually traveled to the United States to lecture on the topic. After the Bauhaus was closed, Kandinsky moved to Paris, where he was mostly isolated from the other Impressionist painters. He later became a French citizen and lived the rest of his days there. He died on December 13, 1944.
