Wassily Kandinsky
He was a musician and an artist!

He was born in 1866 in Russia
and died in 1944 in France.

Kandinsky once said:
"Colour is the keyboard, the eyes are the harmonies, the soul is the piano with many strings.
The artist is the hand that plays, touching one key or another, to cause vibrations in the soul."
He didn't go to art school
until he was 30 years old!
