Russian painter Vasily Kandinsky is credited for creating the first abstract artworks. Kandinsky’s aesthetic is characterized by several artistic periods spanning his career, including his teaching position at the Bauhaus in Germany from 1922-1933.
During his time at the Bauhaus: “Kandinsky’s works again underwent changes: individual geometrical elements increasingly entered the foreground, his palette was sated with cold colour harmonies which, at times, are perceived as a dissonance, the circle is used differently, as a sensual symbol of perfect form.” – Oleg Ku
In this post, we feature Kandinsky’s geometrically-influenced works.
