Wassily Kandinsky! One of my Favourite Abstract Modern Painters!
Kandinsky was a spiritual artist. He tried to convey his spiritualism in his artwork. Music played a big part in this. Kandinsky felt music could evoke abstract images in the minds of people who heard it.
Many of his painting feature parts of instruments.
I can see keyboards and strings in the painting above. What can you see?
Kandinsky, born in Moscow, came from a well-educated family. He had private art coaching, piano lessons and cello lessons. He didn't start to paint seriously until he was 30.
