(Moscow, Russia, 1866 - Neuilly-sur-Seine, 1944) Russian-born painter, who became a German citizen and later a French citizen. Kandinsky combined his studies in law and economics with drawing and painting classes. While he became interested in primitive culture and Russian folk art, particularly the ornamental art of the Volodga region, he also discovered the work of Rembrandt and Monet.
When he turned thirty, Kandinsky gave up teaching and went to Munich to study painting, renouncing an already consolidated academic future. There he attended F. Stuck's classes, where he met Paul Klee, with whom he maintained a sincere and long-lasting friendship. His interest in colour is present from the beginning of his career, and the influence of Post-Impressionism, Fauvism and German Jugendstil can be seen in his early paintings.
