Vasily Kandinsky : a colorful life : the collection of the Lenbachhaus, Munich by Vivian Endicott Barnett( Book )

16 editions published between 1995 and 1996 in 5 languages and held by 779 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Born in Russia, Vasily Kandinsky (1866-1944) was one of the most original and influential artists to emerge in the twentieth century. He is known primarily for his daring use of color in startling non-objective works. Vasily Kandinsky: A Colorful Life is the most comprehensive and fully illustrated account to date of his early work, from 1900 to 1914, the period in which he made his radical shift to abstraction - and in so doing altered the very concept of art itself. The works presented here are from the collection of the city museum of Munich, or Stadtische Galerie im Lenbachhaus. They were given to the Galerie in 1957 by the artist Gabriele Munter, who was Kandinsky's companion from 1903 to the beginning of World War I. They are being shown at the Galerie in their entirety for the first time in a major exhibition, for which this book serves as the catalogue. In compelling, readable text that draws on the latest research, noted Kandinsky expert Vivian Endicott Barnett illuminates the life and work of the artist. She begins with sketches made during his student years in Munich and considers also his interest in folk art, myths and fairy tales, the small oil studies from nature, medieval scenes, woodcuts, glass paintings and landscapes he made before progressing to the first abstractions. Included as well are the important paintings from the series of Improvisations, Impressions, and Compositions, which are among the highlights of his involvement with the Blue Rider group, and later works from his Bauhaus and Paris years. This sumptuous book includes more than 700 examples of Kandinsky's early genius, most of them brilliantly reproduced in full color. The works are organized chronologically, and paintings are accompanied, when relevant, by preliminary sketches and prints."--Jacket

Kandinsky and Old Russia : the artist as ethnographer and shaman by Peg Weiss( Book )

4 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 694 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Vasilii Kandinsky, whom many consider to be the father of abstract painting, was also a trained ethnographer with an abiding interest in the folklore of Old Russia. In this provocative book, Peg Weiss provides an entirely new interpretation of Kandinsky's art by examining for the first time how this commitment to his ethnic Russian heritage influenced the painter's work throughout his career

Kandinsky by Wassily Kandinsky( Book )

15 editions published between 1984 and 2009 in 3 languages and held by 592 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume presents abstract Russian painter Wassily Kandinsky (1866-1944). It reproduces scores of recently rediscovered paintings that had languished for decades in Soviet museums and in private collections. The author provides new details on Kandinsky's life and art, discussing his little-known experimental stage plays which strove for a synthesis of all the arts, and his friendships with Paul Klee, Arnold Schonberg and composer Thomas von Hartmann, who introduced the artist to Sufism, the mystical offshoot of Islam. Most chapters include excerpts from Kandinsky's newspaper articles, essays and unpublished letters, creating the impression of a tolerant nonconformist who saw art as inseparably linked with the higher laws of the cosmos. The reproductions provide an exciting glimpse of Kandinsky's leap into abstraction after his early absorption of folk and religious art, fauvism and neo-impressionism

Kandinsky : watercolours and other works on paper by Frank Whitford( Book )

12 editions published in 1999 in 3 languages and held by 520 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Vasily Kandinsky (1866-1944) is one of the most important and influential painters of the twentieth century, and was one of the first Western artists to create pictures without figurative motifs, consisting exclusively of colours and forms selected and arranged for their own sake. He was also the first 'abstract' painter (although he generally avoided the term) to explain and justify what he was doing. His theoretical writings, including Concerning the Spiritual in Art (1912) and Point and Line to Plane (1926), both classics of their kind, are among the most significant texts written by any artist this century." "In this catalogue of the first major showing of Kandinsky's work for some years, over 130 works on paper are reproduced in full colour and shown in the context of Kandinsky's oeuvre as a whole. In his introductory essay, Frank Whitford traces Kandinsky's entire artistic career, placing it in the context of his life in Russia, Germany and France and highlighting the importance of watercolours in particular."--Jacket

Kandinsky by Wassily Kandinsky( Book )

17 editions published between 1979 and 1989 in 4 languages and held by 195 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Kandisky's rich, trail-blazing work and complex personality have compelled attention ever since the controversy surrounding his first abstract paintings of 1911, when the press labelled him a "bluffer" and a "madman." In his native Russia, the Communists ostracized him as a "formalist," while the Nazis exhibited his work as "Degenerate Art." Member of the Blaue Reiter and the Bauhaus, close ally of Franz Marc and Paul Klee, Kandinsky influenced virtually the entire spectrum of modern art but for decades much of his oeuvre languished unseen in museum depots and private hands in the former Soviet Union. The opening of the old USSR in 1989 brought in its wake the first-ever Kandinsky retrospective in his homeland, drawing on the untapped resources of Moscow's and St. Petersburg's museums and on many provincial and private collections. Works unseen for decades and presumed lost, and others totally unknown, were brought to light. Perceptions of Kandinsky were transformed overnight. This is the first monograph on Kandinsky to take into account the latest findings from Russia to Eastern Europe. Many works never before reproduced, from the East and from private collections in the West, are included. Kandinsky's own words, including extracts from hitherto unpublished manuscripts, are used as commentary on his paintings: for the artist was also an excellent writer, who remains the best interpreter of his own art. The most up-to-date studies are incorporated to shed light on vehemently disputed areas of Kandinsky's life and thought--such as the exact nature and extent of his debt to Madame Blavatsky's occultism and the influence of his ideas on his abstract aesthetic. Abstract art as it is today is largely the product of Vasily Kandinsky's endeavors. Now, almost fifty years after his death, we at last have the chance to gain a true perspective on the breadth and profundity of this pioneer of modernist painting

Vasily Kandinsky by Thomas M Messer( Book )

3 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Along with his major artistic achievements, Kandinsky's highly original contributions to aesthetic theory are also discussed by Messer, in an extended introductory essay. Kandinsky's critical ideas, developed in the famous Blue Rider Almanac and in his two influential treatises on abstract painting - On the Spiritual in Art and Point and Line to Plane - here provide the reader with intriguing ways to approach his art. A selection of documentary photographs of Kandinsky and his associates and a number of supplementary artworks reproduced in black-and-white complete the volume
