Kandinsky - Sa vie

Behind the author's story, the words of Kandinsky himself are caught: thus one enters the world of the inventor of abstract art along the most important stages that have marked his life. The genesis of his works, his artistic training and the evolution of his thought, his memories, the historical events that upset society in the first half of the 20th century, Russian traditions, avant-gardes, travels, friendships, music, poems, theatre; everything is carefully documented, but pleasantly narrated and expertly intertwined around a fundamental constant in Kandinsky's life, namely the search for an expressive mode of one's inner life. A spiritual tale that immerses the reader in a turbulent historical context “that will lead [...] to fraternization. And therefore also to a great flowering of art”.
