Vasily Vasilievich Kandinsky - Russian graphic artist, revolutionary artist. He burst into Russian art with the most daring ideas that he embodied in his paintings. The painter and founder of the famous direction in art - abstractionism, which followed almost his entire conscious creative life.
Kandinsky became famous not only for his works shocking the public and the academic community of the early 20th century, but also for theoretical works on the theme of art and painting. Vasily Vasilyevich also founded the Blue Horseman, a group of expressionist artists and for a long time worked as a teacher in many countries of the world.
Surprisingly, Kandinsky’s unusualness lies in his biography. Vasily Vasilyevich decided to become an artist at the age of 30, and enthusiastically devoted his life to this dream. This was facilitated by the indelible impression made at the Kandinsky exhibition of the Impressionists in Moscow, in which he first saw Claude Monet's painting “Haystack”.
Looking now at the works of Kandinsky, such as "Yellow-Red-Blue", it is difficult to believe that the artist began his fascination with art with light and airy paintings of the Impressionists. The masterpieces of abstractionism that emerged from Kandinsky’s brush are distinguished by a sharp line, an abundance of details and a very bright, eye-catching color spot.
The name of the picture "Yellow-Red-Blue" speaks, perhaps, for itself. The canvas really shows the indicated colors - sometimes mixed, overlapped, enhanced by shades or, conversely, masked by details.
In all the paintings, Kandinsky reflects a spiritual impulse, puts a piece of his vision of the world. Not every viewer will understand this work, but its artistic value is undeniable to this day.
