From the outset Kandinsky painted like a mature artist, albeit an unskilled one. He attempted his hand at a couple of kinds, on a few diverse paths. however it was once his personal hand he attempted, now not that of somebody else. As early because the flip of the century, a severe mass of energetic details (visual and philosophical) had amassed in Kandinsky’s creative attention. He was once faraway from being attracted to every little thing, yet “all tongues” have been, actually, “known” to him.
