Wassily Kandinsky – Portrait Directed by André S. Labarthe


Discover the Russian painter and abstract art pioneer Vassily Kandinsky.

Color, form, area – this is the formula of the greatest pioneer of abstract painting. Kandinsky came to art late in life, but his impact through The Blue Rider (Der Blaue Reiter) and Bauhaus paved the way for modern art. In 1913, he created one of the first abstract paintings, the theoretical basis of which was inspired by his essay On the Spiritual in Art. Accompanied by Mussorgsky’s Pictures From An Exhibition, Labarthe goes on a sensual journey which makes the soul resound with colors and forms. "A picture has to resound and must be bathed in an inner glow." – Kandinsky
