Colour, form, area – this is the formula of the greatest pioneer of abstract painting. Wassily Kandinsky came to art late in life, but his impact through Der Blaue Reiter (The Blue Rider) and Bauhaus paved the way for modern art.
In 1913, he created one of the first abstract pictures, the theoretical basis of which was inspired by his essay Uber das Geistige in der Kunst (On the Spiritual in Art).
Accompanied by Mussorgsky’s Pictures from an Exhibition, Andre Labarthe takes a sensual journey through colour and form.
Art Lives from Arthaus, is a series of compelling documentaries on artists and art movements released for the first time on DVD in the English language.
