Happy Birthday to Vassily Vassilyevich Kandinsky, the Russian artist credited with painting the first purely abstract works. Kandinsky’s creation of abstract work followed a long period of development and maturation of intense thought based on his artistic experiences. He called this devotion to inner beauty, fervor of spirit, and spiritual desire inner necessity; it was a central aspect of his art.”Circles in a Circle”, 1923, Vassily Kandinsky.
