Librivox: Published in 1911, Kandinsky's book compares the spiritual life of humanity to a pyramid -- the artist has a mission to lead others to the pinnacle with his work. The point of the pyramid is those few, great artists. It is a spiritual pyramid, advancing and ascending slowly even if it sometimes appears immobile. During decadent periods, the soul sinks to the bottom of the pyramid; humanity searches only for external success, ignoring spiritual forces. Wikipedia: Wassily Wassilyevich Kandinsky[a] (/kænˈdɪnski/; 16 December [O.S. 4 December] 1866 – 13 December 1944) was a Russian painter and art theorist. He is credited with painting one of the first recognised purely abstract works. Born in Moscow, Kandinsky spent his childhood in Odessa, where he graduated at Grekov Odessa Art school. He enrolled at the University of Moscow, studying law and economics. Successful in his profession—he was offered a professorship (chair of Roman Law) at the University of Dorpat—Kandinsky began painting studies (life-drawing, sketching and anatomy) at the age of 30. In 1896, Kandinsky settled in Munich, studying first at Anton Ažbe's private school and then at the Academy of Fine Arts. He returned to Moscow in 1914, after the outbreak of World War I. Kandinsky was unsympathetic to the official theories on art in Communist Moscow, and returned to Germany in 1920. There, he taught at the Bauhaus school of art and architecture from 1922 until the Nazis closed it in 1933. He then moved to France, where he lived for the rest of his life, becoming a French citizen in 1939 and producing some of his most prominent art. He died at Neuilly-sur-Seine in 1944. ▶ Audiobook Bestseller - Playlist: https://goo.gl/jmnpGQ ▶ The Best Audio Books HD Playlist: https://goo.gl/qbQubi ▶ Popular Classic Literature AudioBooks: https://goo.gl/8dh9VT ▶ Literary Classics And Audio Books To Learn English: https://goo.gl/8EcEnJ #audiobook #audiobooks #freeaudiobooks #bestaudiobooks #kandinsky #art #design #history Title: Concerning the Spiritual in Art Author: Wassily KANDINSKY (1866 - 1944), translated by Michael SADLER (1888 - 1957) Reader: Expatriate Genre: Art, Design & Architecture More infromation: https://librivox.org
