Summary; Wassily Kandinsky was one of the first artists to create pictures without figurative motifs. This is a catalogue to the Kandinsky exhibition at the Royal Academy, spanning the artist's entire career and consisting entirely of Kandinsky's work on paper - watercolours, prints and drawings. It is in these small scale works that the spontaneity which Kandinsky was seeking is most clearly shown and it is through the medium of watercolour that the artist achieves the luminosity and intensity he intended. The exhibition also includes a number of his outstanding prints, especially woodcuts and lithographs, which are little known and not often shown. Subjects; Kandinsky, Wassily 1866-1944 - Exhibitions.
