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+-+89066902263242044145ocn000963778book19120.56Kandinsky, WassilyThe Blaue Reiter almanacHistorySourcesExhibition catalogsLa publicación recoge la traducción del texto original completo del almanaque "Der Blaue Reiter", con todas las ilustraciones de la edición de 1912, almanaque considerado como manifiesto del movimiento moderno previo a la primera guerra mundial+-+4552193235126468ocn005532546book19260.53Kandinsky, WassilyPoint and line to planeArt+-+8353871395111132ocn000547956book19330.56Kandinsky, WassilyConcerning the spiritual in art, and painting in particular. 1912.

He is known primarily for his daring use of color in startling non-objective works. Vasily Kandinsky: A Colorful Life is the most comprehensive and fully illustrated account to date of his early work, from 1900 to 1914, the period in which he made his radical shift to abstraction - and in so doing altered the very concept of art itself. The works presented here are from the collection of the city museum of Munich, or Stadtische Galerie im Lenbachhaus. They were given to the Galerie in 1957 by the artist Gabriele Munter, who was Kandinsky's companion from 1903 to the beginning of World War I. They are being shown at the Galerie in their entirety for the first time in a major exhibition, for which this book serves as the catalogue. In compelling, readable text that draws on the latest research, noted Kandinsky expert Vivian Endicott Barnett illuminates the life and work of the artist. She begins with sketches made during his student years in Munich and considers also his interest in folk art, myths and fairy tales, the small oil studies from nature, medieval scenes, woodcuts, glass paintings and landscapes he made before progressing to the first abstractions. Included as well are the important paintings from the series of Improvisations, Impressions, and Compositions, which are among the highlights of his involvement with the Blue Rider group, and later works from his Bauhaus and Paris years. This sumptuous book includes more than 700 examples of Kandinsky's early genius, most of them brilliantly reproduced in full color. The works are organized chronologically, and paintings are accompanied, when relevant, by preliminary sketches and prints."--Jacket+-+64681456356873ocn009465179book19830.39Barnett, Vivian EndicottKandinsky at the GuggenheimBiography6853ocn030701876book19950.59Weiss, PegKandinsky and Old Russia : the artist as ethnographer and shamanCriticism, interpretation, etcVasilii Kandinsky, whom many consider to be the father of abstract painting, was also a trained ethnographer with an abiding interest in the folklore of Old Russia.

He was also the first 'abstract' painter (although he generally avoided the term) to explain and justify what he was doing. His theoretical writings, including Concerning the Spiritual in Art (1912) and Point and Line to Plane (1926), both classics of their kind, are among the most significant texts written by any artist this century."

Nowadays he is regarded as the founder of abstract art and is, moreover, the chief theoretician of this type of painting. Together with Franz Marc and others he founded the group of artists known as the Blauer Reiter in Munich. His art then freed itself more and more from the object, eventually culminating in the First Abstract Watercolour of 1910. In his theoretical writings Kandinsky repeatedly sought the proximity of music; and just as in music, where the individual notes constitute the medium whose effect stems from harmony and euphony, Kandinsky was aiming for a pure concord of colour through the interplay of various shades.

"In his discussion of each artist the author has chosen key works to illustrate a visual progression away from figurative painting; each is described and analyzed in terms of colour, medium, content and scale, supplemented by a range of comparative material demonstrating stylistic influences, especially the pivotal role and impact of Cubism in general on Mondrian and Malevich. In the case of each painter attention is drawn to specific factors, such as the effect on Malevich of Futurism and its concern with depicting movement, and particular sources of inspiration or use of symbolism, for example the importance of water and the sea for Jackson Pollock or of shamanistic motifs present in works by Clyfford Still."--BOOK JACKET+-+74083755053248246ocn000024395book19690.47Overy, PaulKandinsky: the language of the eye7232ocn007006559book19800.47Kandinsky, WassilySounds+-+69117555853246362ocn026064864book19920.33Kandinsky, WassilyKandinsky : watercolors and drawingsExhibition catalogs+-+09366864283245942ocn001285315book19640.33Lassaigne, JacquesKandinsky; biographical and critical study5893ocn005492243book19800.59Long, Rose-Carol WashtonKandinsky, the development of an abstract style5883ocn024142985book19920.63Roskill, Mark WKlee, Kandinsky, and the thought of their time : a critical perspectiveHistoryCriticism, interpretation, etcIn an original and broad-ranging study, Mark Roskill shows how social, cultural, and political events in Europe during the first forty years of the twentieth century provide a context for understanding the work of Paul Klee and Wassily Kandinsky. The two artists, who knew each other well and taught together for some time, responded to philosophical ideas, literature, music, and world events by producing some of the most intriguing and at times perplexing art of their time. Roskill's interpretation considers Klee and Kandinsky in relation to the artistic climate of the Munich Academy, the Bauhaus in both Weimar and Dessau, and other major cultural centers, including Paris.

This formed the foundation of his world view which saw the artist in a missionary role. In the 'stage composition' he experimented with possibilities of portraying the mental realm on the stage and sought an appropriate language of form and color. This study is the first to present a complete interpretation of the four early stage compositions by means of an interdisciplinary body and movement analysis conducted from the perspectives of theatre studies and iconography. It explains the tetralogy as a precursor to 'The Blue Rider', Kandinsky's self-portrait.

In Europe, his influence has long been acknowledged through his tenure at the Bauhaus, his cofounding of the Blaue Reiter group, and his important writings. Only in recent years, however, has Kandinsky's enormous impact on American painting come to be recognized and studied. Theme & Improvisation is both a tribute to Kandinsky and an examination of the exquisite works of American art that demonstrate his influence. While he never visited North America, by the time of his death and the traveling memorial exhibition of his works presented in the United States (1945), Kandinsky's work had become widely recognized and appreciated in America. This country's major introduction to the Russian's work had come through the 1913 Armory Show and by means of Alfred Stieglitz's 291 Gallery, which was devoted to the work of avant-garde artists. Subsequently, several artists who spent time in France and Germany were fortunate to get to know this master, seeing his work and discussing his theories firsthand, among them Marsden Hartley, Albert Bloch, and Konrad Cramer. But an even more persuasive argument for the extent of his influence is found in the work of those Americans who never met this innovator but nonetheless began to experiment with non-objective painting. Documentary evidence demonstrates how deeply influenced were such New York-based artists as Georgia O'Keeffe, Arthur Dove, and Ilya Bolotowsky as well as artists working far from Manhattan, including Emil Bisttram, Ed Garman, Raymond Jonson, and Agnes Pelton. An important final chapter explores the impact of Kandinsky's ideas and art on such Abstract Expressionists as Jackson Pollock, Arshile Gorky, and Hans Hofmann. Resulting from a groundbreaking, four-venue exhibition, Theme & Improvisation features exquisite color reproductions of works from Kandinsky's abstract oeuvre as well as of works by thirty-eight remarkable American artists - some world-renowned, others less well known. Based on important new research into the art of the American avant-garde, and illustrated with many beautiful, often revelatory works of art, this book points the way to a new interpretation of the art of the first half of the twentieth century+-+8906690226324+-+8906690226324Fri Mar 21 15:09:18 EDT 2014batch117934
