WASSILY KANDINSKY (Russian / 1866-1944)

Wassily Kandinsky was born in Moscow, and grew up in Odessa. He settled in Munich in 1898. One of the key Expressionists, Wassily Kandinsky was a founder of Der Blaue Reiter group alongside August Macke and Franz Marc. Kandinsky taught at the Bauhaus from 1922-33. He escaped the Nazis (who condemned and destroyed his "degenerate art") and took refuge in France, becoming a French citizen in 1939. Kandinsky's most important prints are the woodcuts for Klange (Sounds), published in 1913. There is a catalogue raisonné of Wassily Kandinsky's prints by Hans K. Roethel.
