One of a collection of fine art paintings beautifully depicted in counted cross stitch from the Cross Stitch Collectibles Collection. This is a piece by Kandinsky.
Wassily Wassilyevich Kandinsky (4 December] 1866 – 13 December 1944) was a Russian painter, and art theorist. He is credited with painting of the first purely abstract works.
Born in Moscow, Kandinsky spent his childhood in Odessa. He enrolled at the University of Moscow and chose to study law and economics. Quite successful in his profession—he was offered a professorship (chair of Roman Law) at the University of Dorpat—he started painting studies (life-drawing, sketching and anatomy) at the age of 30.
In 1896, he settled in Munich and studied first in the private school of Anton AÅ¾be and then at the Academy of Fine Arts, Munich. He went back to Moscow in 1914, after World War I started. He was unsympathetic to the official theories on art in Moscow and returned to Germany in 1921. There, he taught at the Bauhaus school of art and architecture from 1922 until the Nazis closed it in 1933. He then moved to France where he lived the rest of his life, and became a French citizen in 1939.
He died at Neuilly-sur-Seine in 1944.
