Offering an extensive exploration of the influence of Wassily Kandinsky's art and his theoretical writings on Modernist developments in the United States, this catalogue features excellent color reproductions of 13 works by the Russian painter (1866-1944) and of some 70 paintings and drawings by 38 American artists, including Bloch, Hartley, Dove, O'Keeffe, Jonson, Hofmann and Pollock as well as many lesser-known figures. Six substantial essays discuss the reception accorded Kandinsky's ideas by members of the early avant garde in America, document his impact on individual artists and movements throughout the United States during the 1920s and 30s, and assess the importance of his work to the rise of Abstract Expressionism.
