Wassily Kandinsky | Vasily Vasilyevich Kandinsky, 1866-1944.
Wassily Kandinsky | Vasily Vasilyevich Kandinsky in Moscow in 1917

     Wassily Kandinsky aka Vasily Vasilyevich Kandinsky was born in Moscow on 4 December 1866 at a time of economic and cultural prosperity. A few years earlier, Czar Alexander II had introduced some reforms which had enabled his family to return to Moscow from a tea-growing area near the Mongolian border in eastern Siberia. When he was five his family moved to Odessa and his parents divorced soon afterwards.
     Kandinsky received his first drawing lessons when he was 10-years-old but he didn't begin studying painting until he was 1896. In 1900, he studied with Paul Klee at the Munich Academy of Art under Franz von Stuck. That year his work was shown at an exhibition of the Moscow Artists Association.
    In 1906 Kandinsky moved to Paris with with Gabriele Munter and lived there until he moved to Berlin with him. While in Paris Kandinsky's art works enjoyed 

increasing popularity and were shown in many exhibitions there, including the Salon d'Automne, as well as at exhibitions in Dresden. His work was frequently displayed at exhibitions continuously until 1914 when there was some reduction in his output.
     Although in the 1917 photo above of Kandinsky in Moscow he doesn't appear to belong to the “working class", Kandinsky made the transition during the Bolshevik revolution in Russia without problem and became a key player in the art establishment there. In 1919, he became director of the Museum for Artistic Culture in Moscow
and had his work displayed with that of Kasimir Malevich and other Russian artists in the First State Exhibition.
     In 1921 Kandinsky was elected vice-president of the Russian Academy of Aesthetics and also became head of its psychology department. Two years later he had his first one-man exhibition in New York.
     He became a German citizen in 1928 but became a French citizen in 1939. Perhaps part of the reason for changing his citizenship again was because Kandinsky's work was shown in the 1937 Nazi exhibition of Degenerate Art and 57 of his art works in German museums were confiscated.
     Kandinsky's created his last major work in 1939, Composition X, and died of arteriosclerosis in the month of his birth in 1944 at the age of 78.
