Portrait of an Artist: Wassily Kandinsky

In this program, we will look at the paintings of this extremely innovative and spiritual Russian artist who is a key figure in the development of abstract Modern art. Kandinsky enjoyed a long, varied career, and we will discuss his early works, his time with the Blue Rider Group, his tenure at the Bauhaus school and the end of his life in France. Many current historians believe Kandinsky was a synesthete, and we will explore the connections between color, music, sound and spirit in his art. Presented by Ann Shifflet, Instructor at Columbus College of Art and Design.
