Dec. 13, 1944, Neuilly-sur-Seine, Fr.),Russian-born artist, one of the first creators of pure ab straction in modernpainting. After successful avant-garde exhibitions, he founded the influentialMunich group Der Blaue Reiter (The BlueRider; 1911-14) and began completely abstract painting. His formsevolved from fluid and organic to geometric and, finally, to pictographic (e.g., Tempered Йlan, 1944).

Encyclopaedia Britannica, 1994

Kandinsky,himself an accomplished musician, once said Color is the keyboard, the eyes arethe harmonies, the soul is the piano with many strings. The artist is the handthat plays, touching one key or another, to cause vibrations in the soul. Theconcept that color and musical harmony are linked has a long history,intriguing scientists such as Sir Isaac Newton. Kandinsky used color in ahighly theoretical way associating tone with timbre (the sound's character),hue with pitch, and saturation with the volume of sound. He even claimed thatwhen he saw color he heard music.
