Wassily Kandinsky - Large Format Fine Art Prints and Reproductions

Wassily Kandinsky (1866–1944) was an influential Russian painter and art theorist. He is credited with painting one of the first purely abstract works. Born in Moscow, Kandinsky spent his childhood in Odessa. He enrolled at the University of Moscow, studying law and economics. Successful in his profession, he was offered a professorship (chair of Roman Law) at the University of Dorpat. Kandinsky began painting studies (life-drawing, sketching and anatomy) at the age of 30.

In 1896 Kandinsky settled in Munich, studying first at Anton Ažbe's private school and then at the Academy of Fine Arts. He returned to Moscow in 1914, after the outbreak of World War I. Kandinsky was unsympathetic to the official theories on art in Communist Moscow, and returned to Germany in 1921. There, he taught at the Bauhaus school of art and architecture from 1922 until the Nazis closed it in 1933. He then moved to France, where he lived for the rest of his life, becoming a French citizen in 1939 and producing some of his most prominent art. He died at Neuilly-sur-Seine in 1944.

Auf Weiss II

€37.00
By its primary colors, its geometrical forms and the weightless floating of the composition in a space that seems infinite, this painting by Wassily Kandinsky is to be compared to the suprematism of Kasimir Malevich, whom the artist discovers in Russia. Crossing of diagonals, punctuated by checkers, triangles, quadrilaterals and three small black lines...

Image with red spot

€37.00
The composition starts from a spot of color, the only "flat" surface of the painted canvas. The double trapezoidal arc, drawn at the top of the painting, links two essential nuclei, one perfectly calm - the red spot - and the other broken into a bunch of colors. The painting is dated February 25, 1914. Kandinsky's reputation reached the Anglo-Saxon world....

Impression III (Concert)

€37.00
Impressions was Kandinsky's term for “direct sensations received from ‘outward nature;’” in 1911, he painted a total of six Impressions, which appear largely nonrepresentational even though they were inspired by impressions of nature outside of him. In fact, the Impressions may render not just visual, but also acoustic sensations: Impression III (Concert)...

Improvisation 27 (Garden of Love II)

Picture with an archer

€37.00
The color in Picture with an Archer is vibrantly alive—so much so that the scene is initially hard to make out. The patchwork surface seems to be shrugging off the task of describing a space or form. Kandinsky was the first modern artist to paint an entirely abstract composition; at the time of Picture with an Archer, that work was just a few months away.

Points

€37.00
Wassily Kandinsky created "Points" in 1920. In his writings, Kandinsky analyzed the geometrical elements which make up every painting - the point and the line. A point is a small bit of colour put by the artist on the canvas. It is neither a geometric point nor a mathematical abstraction; it is extension, form and colour. This form can be a square, a...

The Blue Rider

€37.00
Franz Marc and Wassily Kandinsky. The Blue Rider, "Der Blaue Reiter", synonym for a departure into uncharted artistic territory, was originally the title of a yearbook, the now-legendary Almanach edited by Kandinsky and Marc in 1912. It contained pictures and writings by a range of artists from different cultures and periods. Not a manifesto in the...

Yellow Red Blue

€37.00
By format and importance, "Yellow Red Blue" (1925) approaches the great compositions of Kandinsky. The left half of the canvas is clear and airy, with graphic elements and many straight lines, while the right side is darker and heavier, with more pictorial ideas such as the dark blue circle and the sinuous black line. The "earthy" yellow means stability...
