2" x 1.3" Soft Enamel Pin Double Posted Rubber Clasps Inspired by "The Blue Rider" by Wassily Kandinsky © 2021 Artists Rights Society (ARS), New York Wassily Kandinsky (1866-1944) was a Russian-born painter and art theorist, considered to be one of the leading figures of abstraction in Western art. In 1911, he co-formed, alongside artist Franz Marc (1880-1916), the German expressionist group Der Blaue Reiter (The Blue Rider), in which artists could explore the spiritual values of art. The group is thought to be named after the title of a post-impressionist painting Kandinsky made in 1903; for Kandinsky, the color blue was the color of spirituality. This painting, made just a year later in 1912, shares the same title and features Kandinsky’s characteristic style of the period. Comes packaged with Pin Museum branded backer card, and a protective polybag.
