Test your knowledge on the artwork of one of Russia’s most famous painters, Wassily Kandinsky 

Moscow-born Wassily Kandinsky is one of the most prominent Russian painters. He’s most known for his abstract artwork and theories on the conception of art and role of the artist.

Throughout his art career, Kandinsky went through very different artistic periods. He was influenced by his experience fleeing two World Wars, returning to Russia and leaving his homeland for good. He also later taught in different art schools like the Bauhaus in Germany and before finally settling down in France in the final years of his life.

He was a synesthete with a unique style of intricate abstraction, very much recognisable in the eyes of art enthusiasts. Let’s see if you can recognise the artwork of the Kandinsky from other modern Russian painters.
