Vasily Kandinsky is a representative of the world avant-garde, one of the founders of the abstract in painting. He was the first to theoretically substantiate the principles of the new art. Although Wassily showed talent as both a musician and artist in his youth, art was a hobby to him until age 30 when he first viewed Monet's "Haystack." It was after this that he started painting studies (life-drawing, sketching, and anatomy).
