Vasilij Kandinsky (1866-1944), the forerunner and founder of Abstractionism, Vasilij Kandinsky was a wall-decoration teacher at the Bauhaus between 1922 and 1933, firstly in Weimar, secondly in Dessau. The years at the Bauhaus were characterized by his friendship with Paul Klee and by the publication of a fundamental essay: “Point and Line on the Plane.

With the establishment of dictatorship, Kandinsky was accused of Bolshevism and was forced to leave his country to move to Neuilly-sur-Seine, a suburb of Paris. In Munich in 1937, the famous exhibition of “degenerate art”, with which Adolph Hitler intended to condemn the new artistic avant-gardes, was realized. At this exhibition, 50 of Kandinsky’s works appeared and were eventually sold at auctions with low prices to foreign purchasers.
