There are many forms of Modern Art, some more diverse, and more controversial than others. For more than one hundred years, the time when the realms of Modern Art were moulded, there has been much controversy. Today, much of the Abstract Art which was once rejected, primarily, because of lack of understanding, has become widespread. Abstract Art developed through many progressions within Art. However, it is Russian born Wassily Wassilyevich Kandinsky (1866-1944) who was accredited as being the first Modern Abstract Artist to produce pure Abstract Art works, in 1910. Kandinsky grew up in the city of Odessa, situated in the Southern Ukraine. Unlike many of the famous Artists of this period, Kandinsky did not study Art, nor did he begin painting at an early age. In fact, Wassily Wassilyevich Kandinsky did not pick up an Artist brush or pencil until he was thirty years old. He studied law and economics at the University of Moscow, then went on to gain a professorship at the University of Dorpat.
When Kandinsky moved to Munich in 1896, he began to study Art at the private Art school of Anton Azbe. A school which had become one of the most famous in the capitol. Kandinsky was not the only renowned Artist to study here. Jawelensky, Jakopic and Petrovic all attended the A�be School. Jawelensky moved to the Bavarian capitol in 1896, the same year as Kandinsky, in order to study at the Azbe School. In 1909, he and other artists would join Kandinsky to form the Neue K�nstlervereinigung M�nchen, in 1909. It translated, the �New Artists Association of Munich�. The early work of Jawelensky was rich and colorful, but later, his work would search for the simplicity and spirituality found within Abstract Art. The New Artists Association would lead to founding of Der Blaue Reiter, or the Blue Rider, group. A short lived but notable forerunner, for the development of Modern Art, during the twentieth century. Kandinsky and Franz Marc was central to the formation of the �Blue Rider�. The group formed as a direct response to the refusal to exhibit an Oil Painting of Kandinsky�s, titled �The Last Judgement�. Other members of the Blue Rider group included August Macke, Albert Bloch and Lyonel Feininger. All of which are considered to be highly influential and important painters, with regards to the development of Modern Art. The color blue, for Kandinsky represented the spiritual – as discussed in his book published in 1911, �On the Spiritual in Art�.
Every Artist, within the Blue Rider Group, had an individual approach and style associated with their Abstract Art. However, what each of them shared, was the desire to express and paint a �spiritual truth�. Therefore, promoting the concepts we recognize today, as Modern Abstract Art. The principles of Modern Art, essentially Abstract Art, began with Kandinsky, and the work carried out by the Blue Rider group. Even today, their philosophies remain quintessential to most, if not all forms of Modern Art. The underlying foundation to what has evolved to be one of the most important milestones in the History of Art. To enjoy Abstract Art, one must, essentially, understand it, aesthetically and spiritually.
