"the eyes are the harmony"

Composition 6 - Wassily Kandinsky

Kandinsky started painting at 30 years of age! He already had a law degree and was about to pursue his own practice.

This was done earlier in his career, when he finally felt like he was getting where he wanted with his painting. His style would slightly shift, though, later in Berlin when he was a teacher at Bauhaus, then again in Paris. The Guggenheim shows this progression flawlessly.
