Kandinsky Drawings Vol 2

Kandinsky Drawings Vol 2

This second volume in the two-volume catalogue raisonné of Kandinsky's drawings is devoted to Kandinsky's thirty-eight sketchbooks. A companion to Volume One which focused on his individual drawings, it illustrates and documents his sketchbook pages, with drawings dating from 1889 to 1943, many of which have never before been published. This volume also includes a commentary essay by the author - an internationally recognized Kandinsky scholar - which addresses aspects of his work that have not previously been studied and sheds new light on the artist's creative process. Appendices include a range of rare wood sculptures and decorative objects that Kandinsky created and color reproductions of his paintings and watercolours not illustrated in previous volumes.
