Wassily Kandinsky (1866–1944) was painter, printmaker, watercolorist, pioneering theorist of abstraction. Abandoning an academic law career in Russia, he moved to Munich in 1896 at age of thirty to study art. In Munich Kandinsky founded several modern art groups, most notably the Blaue Reiter, in 1911, with Franz Marc. At that time he developed artistic philosophy based on the psychology of colors and shapes and rejected objective representation and materialism in his art and theoretical writings, favoring spiritual approach of "inner necessity," which culminated in his breakthrough to abstraction, around 1913. Nearly two-thirds of his two hundred prints were made between 1900 and 1911, including more than fifty Jugendstil and fairy tale–inspired woodcuts from 1902 to 1904, and another fifty-six increasingly abstract woodcuts between 1907 and 1911 for his book Klänge (Sounds) (1913). These formal experiments with reductive woodcuts served as an important avenue toward abstraction. From 1913 to 1916 Wassily Kandinsky turned to drypoint, completing twelve rich examples. As a Russian citizen, he was expelled from Germany at outbreak of World War I. In post-revolutionary Russia Kandinsky was closely involved with Constructivist circles reorganizing artistic culture, and his own painting became increasingly geometric in style. He returned to Germany in 1921 and was taught at the Bauhaus from 1922 until shuttered by Nazis in 1933. Kandinsky reengaged with various printmaking techniques during Bauhaus years, but left Germany in 1933 and spent remaining years in France. .
