Vasily Vasilyevich Kandinsky (December 16 (4), 1866, Moscow — December 13, 1944 , Neuilly-sur-Seine, France) was a Russian painter, graphic artist, and art theorist, one of the founders of abstractart . He was one of the founders of the Blue rider group and a teacher at the Bauhaus.
Kandinsky chose his career as an artist relatively late — at the age of 30. In 1896, he settled in Munich and then remained in Germany until 1914. In Munich, he met Russian artists: A. G. Yavlensky, M. V. Verevkina, V. G. Bekhteev, D. N. Kardovsky, M. V. Dobuzhinsky, I. Ya. Bilibin, K. S. Petrov-Vodkin, I. E. Grabar.
In 1900, he entered the Munich Academy of fine arts, where he studied under Franz von Stuck. Since 1901 Kandinsky created the art Association "Phalanx", organized a school with him, in which he taught.
Kandinsky's works received a second life in numerous reproductions. In our online store, mosaics with paintings by the artist are presented in the section Kandinsky puzzles.
