Monet and Kandinsky


Vassily Kandinsky viewed Claude Monet's
Haystack paintings in 1891 in Moscow.
He was struck by the color and the fact
that he couldn't tell in some of them
what the painting was of. Monet did a
series of Haystack painting in one day
and different seasons to see how the light
changed. Another series was Rouen
Cathedral. Kandinsky comes to Germany,
teaches at Bauhaus in Munich ( an arch-
itectural school) and has the courage from
Monet to paint color. 20 years later, he
paints Abstract Art.
