Wassily Kandinsky was one of many influential artists during the Expressionist Movement. This movement lasted 20 years, from 1905 to 1925. This time period holds few historical significances, which influenced expressionism very much so. The end of World War I left Europe in ruins. Many people fluttered to America to escape the warfare. Artists began to express happy thoughts through painting to hopefully bring joy into one's lives. Kandinsky's contribution of paintings filled with shapes and colors helped change society's perspective of the world after the war. Kandinsky was born in 1866 in Moscow, Russia into a wealthy family of mixed ethnicity. Most of his childhood was spent in Odessa, a very populated city in Ukraine.
