Alla base del libro sono i corsi che Kandinsky teneva dal 1922 al Bauhaus. In essi egli mirava soprattutto a individuare la natura e le proprietà degli elementi fondamentali della forma, perciò innanzitutto del punto, della linea e della superficie. Con estremo radicalismo Kandinsky dichiarava allora di voler fondare una scienza dell'arte: nel corso ulteriore delle ricerche i problemi avrebbero dovuto esser risolti matematicamente, e su questa strada si sarebbe mossa tutta l'arte futura. Per questo suo assunto e per le scoperte che per la prima volta vi sono esposte, Punto, linea, superficie ebbe un'influenza determinante in diversi campi, basti pensare alla grafica. Ma ciò che oggi colpisce nel libro è innanzitutto l'abbozzo di una metafisica della forma, ben più che il progetto di una scienza esatta. Per Kandinsky la forma, in ogni sua specie - naturale e artificiale -, è manifestazione significante di una realtà, è tensione di forze, e solo in rapporto al suo sottofondo invisibile può essere compresa. È chiaro che, con ciò, viene abbandonato irrimediabilmente il recinto dell'estetica: si entra invece in un regno diverso, dove ogni forma diventa un essere vivente - e in questo regno Kandinsky ci introduce come un rabdomante, che rintraccia e traduce continuamente l'uno nell'altro, con la sua inquietante sensibilità eidetica, segni sonori, grafici, cromatici
Concerning the spiritual in art by Wassily Kandinsky( Book )
29 editions published between 1952 and 2009 in German and Undetermined and held by 135 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A pioneering work in the movement to free art from its traditional bonds to material reality, this book is one of the most important documents in the history of modern art. Written by the famous nonobjective painter Wassily Kandinsky (1866-1944), it explains Kandinsky's own theory of painting and crystallizes the ideas that were influencing many other modern artists of the period. Along with his own ground-breaking paintings, this book had a tremendous impact on the development of modern art. The first part issues a call for a spiritual revolution in painting that will let artists express their own inner lives in abstract, non-material terms. Just as musicians do not depend upon the material world for their music, so artists should not have to depend upon the material world for their art. In the second part, Kandinsky discusses the psychology of colors, the language of form and color, and the responsibilities of the artist. An Introduction by the translator offers additional explanation of Kandinsky's art and theories.--From publisher description

"As a painter and a teacher, and co-founder of the Blaue Reiter, the Russian-born artist Vasily Kandinsky has played a leading role in the unfolding of modern art. Greatly influenced by music -- "music is the ultimate teacher," he once averred -- Kandinsky painted his first abstract compositions during his Bavarian period (1906-1914), and these riotously musical canvases, with their intense symphonies of color and wildly jostling forms, have influenced successive generations of abstract artists to the present day"--Publisher

Georges Vantongerloo : a longing for infinity : 3 November 2009-22 February 2010 by Georges Vantongerloo( Book )
1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 105 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The catalogue is published on the occasion of the first individual exhibition of Georges Vantongerloo in Spain. The catalogue reveals the grounding of his work in the re-conceptualisation of pictorial and sculptural space that marked the abstract tendencies in art of the early 20th century. In the 1920s an important part of the Vantongerloo's investigation was centred on colour as physical and perceptive phenomenon. Later, Vantongerloo will conceive his works according to strictly geometric rules, algebraic afterwards, to turn, thus, into the founder of the mathematical thought in art in our epoch. Genuine pioneer in the abstract sculpture field, the artist will continue, after 1945, proposing peculiar versions of that kind of sculpture, abandoning all the reference to a built geometry, and opening to a subjective approach to the universe of cosmology." --Book Jacket
