Wassily Kandinsky (1866–1944) was born in Moscow, Russia. He moved to Munich, Germany to devote himself full-time to the study of art. Although he studied at a prestigious private painting school and the Munich Academy of Arts, much of his study was self-directed. He began with conventional themes and art forms, all the while forming theories derived from devoted spiritual study and an intense relationship between music and color. These theories came together during the first decade of the 20th century, leading him toward his ultimate status as the father of abstract art. Rather than a faithful description of nature or subject matter, color became more an expression of emotion. His friendships and artist groups included other painters of the time, such as Paul Klee. He frequently exhibited, published his ideas on theories of art, and taught art classes.
