This book remains one of the most important studies of Kandinsky to have been written. Grohmann knew the artist personally and is able to present a rich biography of Kandinsky's life and work. He examines Kandinsky's place as the founder of Abstract Expressionism. All of the artist's oil paintings known at the time are reproduced here, alongside many of his drawings, prints and sketches.
