Kandinsky and the Birth of Abstraction

"Wassily Kandinsky painted BILD MIT WEISSEN LINIEN in 1913—a year that is widely recognized as one of the most important in the development of modern art. During this year, Kandinsky created the most celebrated series of abstract paintings in the history of early 20th-century art. Bild mit weissen Linien, executed on a grand scale and in dazzling colours, is one of the most important paintings by Kandinsky from this crucial year and leads Sotheby’s Impressionist & Modern Art Evening Sale on 21 June in London."
