Onyx turned me onto some Kandinsky and I'm blown away. I may have seen some of his stuff before and didn't know the artists name. I'm not sure. But this is just fantastic in my book. Check some these...

Abstract Expressionism...I think...the art history is blurry in my mind. GONZ9729CustomImage1539775.gif

Lovely, I'm flattered. Anyway, it's recommended that you may try Rothko and Mondrian if you like Kandinsky. All have a strong focus on colours and line as well as musicality. :D

I like Piet Mondrians minimalist work. You can see the progression in his work.

If you Google "Kandinsky and Theosophy" you will find some interesting results.

Without knowing it he painted the transition from the analogic to the digital representation of reality ;)

Lewis Wain liked painting kitties. He also went quite insane. See how his kitties progressed.

Ro-bear those are just wow. There are a lot of artists who went crazy, I saw some art by a lady who had mental illness in an art magazine, but that was a few years ago & I can't remember who it was.

 

Paul Gauguin was probably considered nuts as he left his wife & family to live & paint in Tahiti. Vincent Van Gogh died penniless, his work during his lifetime never sold. History keeps repeating itself.......

I love Kandinsky and just saw some of his work when I was at MoMA in New York recently. Any of the abstract expressionists I like, but none as much as Jackson Pollock. His work takes my breath away. I sat for about 20 minutes in front of his last piece when I saw it as the Chicago Art Institute, and another of his out at MoMA recently. Stunning.

NeverAgain mentioned Paul Gauguin. One of my favorite artists of all time. His paintings have a lot of power. The use of color is spectacular and the mystery of the images just adds to it. This one is in our local museum, and I wish we had a lot more of them:

Forgot to mention this, I think it's fascinating that Paul G embraced the culture of the natives of Tahiti. I don't think he went there to "convert" them or to get them to change their "evil customs". How different from the artist perspective compared to the perspective of the religious zealots who tried to stamp out the religion & cultures of island peoples.

Some theorists even imagined that our universe was managed by fractals ;)
