Carly: I see DNA strands and mushrooms - I just found this artist minutes ago and I am in awe of his talent! His art is VERY activating!

Tracey: This is amazing. My father just picked up a framed water color dated June 1944 in this same style. I don't know if it is from this artist or a student. But this is a beautiful style of art.

Kim: Wow; Kandinsky is one of my favorite artists; he turned me on to Abstract, which is appropriate since he was the father of Abstract art. The socialists of Russia drove him out of his own country, then the socialists of Germany shut him down and called his work "degenerate". He ended up in Paris, and toward the end, used inferior materials to continue his work (shortages during the war).

Natalia from UK: Really love the previous commenter's comment about how this painting makes them cry. It really does seem so sweetly forlorn and lovely. Very much looking forward to hopefully seeing some of Kandinsky's work when I visit in Munich this fall.

Buzz: This painting always makes me cry because I see an old and tired man, a master of his craft, living in France... playfully showing his final performance... a few dancing lines... some intensely detailed mushrooms... His watercolor was always his strongest medium, showing off his genius...

and then...

Good bye.

Fanshu:D from Hong Kong: I am a layman of painting. Just leaving a message here to see when I look at it again in the future, how differently I would perceive the message of the painting.
