Point and Line to Plane - Wassily Kandinsky


This picture was taken in Amsterdam, November 2008.


Kandinsky was a Russian painter, printmaker and art theorist. He taught at the Bauhaus school of art and architecture from 1922 until the Nazis closed it in 1933. There, the development of his work, particularly on point and different forms of lines, lead to the publication, in 1926, of his second major theoretical book Point and Line to Plane (Punkt und Linie zu Flashe - original German title).
