The Athenaeum - White line (Wassily Kandinsky - )
Black Accompaniment (1924) Vassily Kandinsky was an influential Russian painter and art theorist. He is credited with painting the first purely abstract works. He taught at the Bauhaus school of art and architecture from 1922 until the Nazis closed it in 1933. Geometrical elements took on increasing importance in both his teaching and painting—particularly the circle, half-circle, the angle, straight lines and curves. This period was intensely productive.

Kandinsky - Yellow Circle - The deeper the blue becomes, the more strongly it calls man towards the infinite, awakening in him a desire for the pure and, finally, for the supernatural... The brighter it becomes, the more it loses its sound, until it turns into silent stillness and becomes white. " Kandinsky
