Editorial Reviews

Review

«A resident of Russia, Germany, and France, Vasily Kandinsky was perhaps the most international artist of modern times. Yet he always maintained that the departure-point of his pictorial exploration was Muscovy and the ancient traditions of Russian culture. Through exhaustive and deft analysis of the Russian connection, Igor Aronov sheds new light on the mystery of Kandinsky’s artistic development, especially his formulation of abstract painting, his aspiration toward monumental synthesis, and his elaboration of parallels between sound and image.» (John E. Bowlt, Slavic Languages and Literatures Department, The University of Southern California, Los Angeles; Director of Institute of Modern Russian Culture, Los Angeles)
«By studying Vasily Kandinsky’s personal and intellectual life, Igor Aronov deciphers the artist’s hitherto puzzling early works and provides the key to understanding the vital ‘inner meaning’ of his later abstractions. No future writer on Kandinsky will be able to ignore this analysis.» (Ziva Amishai-Maisels, Academic Chair of the Robert H. and Clarice Smith Center for Art History, Hebrew University of Jerusalem)
