This generously illustrated volume displays Vasily Kandinsky’s brilliant use of color, shape, and composition through approximately 250 full-color illustrations. Essays by the world’s leading Kandinsky experts focus on the evolution of his work throughout all periods of his career: his exploration of his Russian roots and his emigration to Munich; his attraction to the Art Nouveau and fauvist movements; the formation of the Blue Rider group; the influence of music on his painting; his years at the Bauhaus; and his late work in Paris.

The book’s design allows for a thorough examination of Kandinsky’s most important works in all their extraordinary detail. Accessible, impeccably researched, and wide-ranging, this important volume offers an indispensable overview of the artist’s seminal works and a tribute to the beauty and power of Kandinsky’s vision.
