He viewed his artwork as a medium for expressing the necessity of an artist aiming to communicate human feelings and concepts. For Kandinsky painting was an act that sought to captivate the viewer's senses, emotions, and auditory faculties. His inspiration stemmed from the notion that complete abstraction could offer a transcendent encounter detached from the realm. His artistic journey transitioned through phases starting from works with divine symbolism to grand compositions resembling operas culminating in geometric and organic flat color planes. This development mirrors his quest to develop a language that surpasses cultural and physical confines.

He believed that abstract art, like music, had the potential to be a form of nonobjective art capable of evoking a rich spiritual existence.

What was the inspiration, behind Kandinsky's creations?

Wassily Kandinsky drew inspiration from an array of sources that evolved over time. Initially his artistic journey was significantly influenced by an exhibition of Impressionist artworks he attended in 1896 Claude Monet's explorations of haystacks which challenged his perceptions and sparked his fascination with the power of color.

Kandinsky's creative influences were deeply intertwined with nature, spirituality, and the works of artists. He found inspiration in Post Impressionists like Vincent van Gogh and the evocative atmospheres depicted in Edvard Munch's paintings. Furthermore, traces of Kandinsky's interpretation of changes in light and color can be observed in his artistic endeavors.

As he honed his style Kandinsky shifted towards exploring the interplay, between nature and abstraction. Then considering his art abstract he introduced the term "abstract concrete art" to stress that while nonrepresentational his artworks remained rooted in reality. This underscores his belief that art should convey beauty and philosophical convictions stemming from encounters.

Additionally, Kandinsky drew inspiration from the principles of anthroposophy which focused on cherishing beauty and spiritual elements in life. His abstract artworks were a manifestation of his convictions striving to express spirituality and personal introspection.

To sum up, Kandinsky's artistic expression was shaped by his spiritual ideologies, his contemplation of nature, and his involvement, in art movements. These influences propelled him to delve into and push the boundaries of art.

How did Kandinsky's art change, throughout his career?

The development of Wassily Kandinsky's art is a captivating journey from depictions to complete abstraction. His early pieces, like "Couple Riding" (1906 1907) and "Houses in Munich" (1908) still showed elements of landscapes and figures. With a focus on color and shape.

In 1911 there was a shift in Kandinsky's art. After experiencing Arnold Schoenberg's music at a concert he created one of his abstract paintings. This moment marked the start of his exploration into abstraction, which he believed was vital for expressing the essence of an artist.

Kandinsky's move towards abstraction was also influenced by his convictions those outlined in his work "Concerning the Spiritual in Art." He argued that color and form had an impact on viewers without the need for recognizable images or objects. He famously pondered whether artists should completely abandon representation to reveal abstraction.

Throughout the 1910s Kandinsky's artistic forms transitioned from organic and fluid to geometric and eventually, to representations.

Wassily Kandinsky's artwork "Composition V" created in December 1911 is widely regarded as a style that positioned him as a key figure, in the shift towards abstraction.

Following World War I Kandinsky went back to his homeland of Russia, where he took on the role of the director at the Museums of Painterly Culture and later at the Institute of Artistic Culture in Moscow. His artistic endeavors during this time continued to develop influenced by his involvement in policies and art education.

In 1922 Kandinsky became part of the faculty at Bauhaus, a school for art and design in Germany. His tenure at Bauhaus was characterized by the exploration of organic forms blending them in innovative ways. During his years spent in France Kandinsky's artistic journey reached its peak with works that combined both shapes and natural forms. His final paintings, like "Tempered Élan" (1944) exemplify the fusion of his discoveries over his lifetime.

Throughout his career music held importance for Kandinsky. He often accompanied his abstract woodcuts with prose poems as evident, in his collection "Klänge" (Sounds) expressing his aspiration to create nothing but pure sounds. Kandinsky's artistic development mirrors his quest, for a form of art that could evoke emotions beyond language utilizing abstraction as a means, of expression.
