Happy Birthday Kandinsky! December 16 2014

Today is the 148th anniversary of the birth of Wassily Kandinsky, the artist credited with creating the first abstract painting. Born in Moscow and educated in Munich, Kandinsky later taught at the famous Bauhaus School of Art and Architecture in Munich, before finally moving to France, where he died a French citizen in 1944. Our three popular Kandinsky Museum products are based on his "Color Study: Squares with Concentric Circles," painted in 1913.
