Russian artist Wassily Kandinsky Monument
Wassily Kandinsky (December 16, 1866 – December 13, 1944) – Russian graphic artist and painter, and one of the founders of abstract art. In addition, Wassily Kandinsky is the creator of watercolors – chaotic placement of lines and spots that do not represent and do not depict anything. Thus, the artist is fully committed to objectivity, he thought that it interfered with his paintings. At this moment in art began to develop a new direction – abstract. Abstract art continues to exist today, although it has little resemblance to the one that created Kandinsky.
How sadly, in Russia there are no monuments dedicated to the renowned artist Wassily Kandinsky (neither to Chagall and Malevich). Sculpture by Zurab Tsereteli, therefore, is the only monument to the world famous founder of abstract art. However, there is a memorial plaque on the house in Moscow, where Kandinsky lived. And only thanks to the talented sculptor Zurab Tsereteli monuments to Kandinsky, Chagall and Malevich appeared.
