Part of a new series of beautiful gift art books, this book focuses on Wassily Kandinsky, a renowned Russian-born painter, wood-engraver and lithographer who is often regarded as one of the earliest pioneers of abstract art.

Beginning with a fresh and thoughtful introduction to Kandinsky's life and art, 'Wassily Kandinsky Masterpieces of Art' goes on to showcase his key works in all their glory; spanning his early paintings inspired by Russian folk art and fairy tales to his later works characterised by contrasting colours and striking geometric shapes. Includes 100 colour illustrations.
