Wassily Kandinsky: First Abstract Art
This piece is done by Wassily Kandinsky in 1911, and called Composition V. Wassily is known as the "Father of abstract painting", although he was not the first to theorize and produce it. "His work Komposition V did, admittedly, jump start public interest in abstract painting. Exhibited in Munich in December 1911, this monumental work was just barely representational". Due to this, it can be argued that Kandinsky did provide the first general success within the public's eye of an abstract painting.
