About the Artist
Wassily Kandinsky (1866–1944) was an influential Russian painter and a master of modern art. He is credited as a pioneer of abstract art.
This poster is a reproduction of Wassily Kandinsky's Improvisation 31 (Sea Battle) (1913), from the collection of the National Gallery of Art. Kandinsky conveyed meaning through color and form, creating abbreviated shapes that, however abstract, were intended as specific concepts. While this painting appears spontaneous, it was carefully conceived and not an improvisation at all.
