Wassily Kandinsky

Wassily Kandinsky is a much loved Russian painter who was exceptionally influential on the development of modern abstract art thanks to paintings like those that you will find within this website. Wassily Kandinsky also painted other styles of works earlier in his career and many of these have also retained popularity, containing their own strengths and creative flair. The most famous painting from Wassily Kandinsky remains his Concentric Circles piece which contains circles within squares. You can find more on Kandinsky circles here. You can see an image of Concentric Circles (Farbstudie Quadrate) below.

Wassily Kandinsky is most famous for his lively compositions which came at the height of his career when he had truly settled on a form of abstraction which involved clear shapes with bold, primary colours which many find instantly accessible and suitable in today’s contemporary lifestyle, some 100 years after being created by Kandinsky in the first place. Kandinsky was also an art theorist who would use his paintings to output and experiment with his different findings which normally involved research into colour.

Wassily Kandinsky is seen as both a popular painter but also a highly significant one because his own work with abstraction was amongst the very first to appear within the western world, at a time when resistance to it was stubborn and strong. Many years passed by before abstract artists could really claim to have achieved mainstream acceptance and academic respect. Even in today's open society and wide ranging arts scene, many still refuse to see qualities in the work of artists such as Wassily Kandinsky, Joan Miro and Piet Mondrian.

You will see that most of the paintings included in Wassilykandinsky.co.uk contain bright colours and this was very much a secret to his success, with other notable artists known specifically for their highly skilled use of colour including Pablo Picasso, Franz Marc and Marc Chagall whose styles were somewhat different but all fall loosely under the contemorary art umbrella which covers a period of time when colour was becoming even more important than it ever had within art.

Improvisation No 31 is a fine painting from an artist who used relatively blurred lines here and more gradiented colours whereas other abstract pieces from his career held stronger and more distinguised areas. Both methods attracted different sets of fans and both together appreciated his exceptionally bold use of colour which helped lead the way for artists who followed. There is some similarlity with the likes of Franz Marc to the point where it is highly unsurprising that the two spent a lot of time together as part of the brief Der Blaue Reiter movement.

Murnau Garden, below, is one of several paintings that used landscape painting within a highly abstract style and this series has given us some of Kandinsky's most popular paintings, striking an ideal balance between object and abstract that many can understand and appreciate. Some of the more abstract compositions seem to polarise opinion a little more wildly. It is possible to truly understand the path and development of this artist throughout his career by looking at the changes in his paintings year-on-year, which culminated in the most abstract works coming at the end.

Murnau Garden is included above and there were several of these, I, II and III. You can easily distinguish the various block of colours and the objects which they deliver, though the title does help in quickly getting to grips with the details in this piece. This is another of the Kandinsky pieces which bears great similarities to Franz Marc's own style which concentrated on striking a balance between real objects within an abstract environment.

Kandinsky paintings are particularly famous in the modern day, with modern media helping to spread the reputation of artists quickly and thoroughly right across the world. This Russian artist has paintings on display right across Europe, with some held in America too. In most cases they are happily owned by national institutions meaning that they can be viewed relatively easily, though some remain in private collections.

Yellow Red and Blue is another interesting abstract work which uses simple objects to create a certain look, which in this case is the head of a man. As Kandinsky's work became more abstract it was harder to immediately recognise the exact meanings of his constructions.

Color Studies is an example of how Wassily Kandinsky was a highly theorical artist who spent a lot of time researching new ideas which was crucial to him developing art movements and styles which had never been seen before. So much of his own work was original, be it the shapes, the meaning behind each of them, or the colours used to create them. The paintings created by Kandinsky has been classified in the groups of expressionism and abstract art which are relatively large art movements which contain quite wide varieties of artists and methods.

Wassily Kandinsky spent much of his early years producing mainly more traditional style paintings and it was only after his research and theoretical work that he began to create things which had never really been seen before. Many actually prefer his original works and find them an excellent balance between traditional topics such as landscapes but with elements of his own creativity, such as highly vivid colour schemes which were later carried over into his more abstract periods.

Der Blaue Reiter was a painting of a horse and rider making it's way across the landscape that became the name given to a group of artists which contained Wassily Kandinsky, August Macke and Franz Marc who held several exhibitions before their partnership was curtailed by the outbreak of the First World War. Some literature from these individuals was to defend and promote the rise of abstract art and aim to set the record straight with regards the ideas behind it and the likely development of it over coming years.
