Wassily Kandinsky is generally regarded as one of the originators of abstract painting, or abstract expressionism. The Russian painter was an instrumental force in the development of German expressionism.

In 1910 he began formulating his important theoretical study, 'Concerning the Spiritual in Art', examining the psychological effects of color and making comparisons between painting and music.

Together with the German painter Franz Marc, Kandinsky became a leader in the influential Blaue Reiter (Blue Rider) movement, an expressionist group.
