Vasily Kandinsky

(1866 - 1944)

Facing in his own words a “now or never” moment at the age of twenty-nine, Vasily Kandinsky turned down a professorship in Estonia to board a train to Germany, intending to become a painter. He became active in avant-garde circles in Munich, founding “The Blue Rider” group with Franz Marc in 1911. Known as the father of abstract art, Kandinsky taught at the Bauhaus School before the Nazis closed it in 1933.
