To know

A true precursor of abstract art, Vassily Kandinsky is a major artist with an international career. During his life, he participated in the formation of several artistic groups that contributed to his art. The most famous of these was the Blue Rider group (Der Blaue Reiter) created with Franz Marc and other German expressionists. This movement contributed to the diffusion of modern art in society. In 1919, Kandinsky founded the Museum of Pictorial Culture and began a teaching career at the University of Moscow the following year. Leaving the Russian capital in 1921, he moved to Germany, then to France where he continued his work until his death on December 13, 1944 in Neuilly-sur-Seine, France. 

The will to transmit his knowledge has always been present in the artist. Moreover, more than a painter, he is an art theorist, and wrote two books of reflections on painting. The first one: Du spirituel dans l'art in 1911 in which he theorizes the principle of inner necessity, advocating the primordial role of spirituality in artistic creation, then Point et ligne sur plan which appeared in 1926.
