Publisher's description: This book traces the chronological evolution of Kandinsky's art, making use of an unprecedented wealth of documents from the artist's own workshop including autobiographical writings, correspondence, and theoretical essays to shed new light on his prolific creative imagination. Kandinsky divided his work into three categories: impressions (observations of the exterior world), improvisations (expressions of inner feeling), and compositions (images on a grander scale that brought inner and outer visions together) Generously illustrated throughout, this book uncovers the well of symbolic imagery that lies behind Kandinsky's paintings, prints, and poetry and explores his passionate belief in the spiritual and harmonizing power of art.
