Wassily Kandinsky (1866–1944) was painter, printmaker, watercolorist, pioneering theorist of abstraction. Abandoning an academic law career in Russia, he moved to Munich in 1896 at age of thirty to study art. In Munich Kandinsky founded several modern art groups, most notably the Blaue Reiter, in 1911, with Franz Marc. At that time he developed artistic philosophy based on the psychology of colors and shapes and rejected objective representation and materialism in his art and theoretical writings, favoring spiritual approach of "inner necessity," which culminated in his breakthrough to abstraction, around 1913.
