|"Haystacks" by Claude Monet|
Kandinsky studied at a private art school in Munich for two years and begins to exhibit his work publicly. In 1913 he exhibits work (The Garden of Love: Improvisation Number 27, 1912) at the Amory Show in New York. This is the first large exhibition of modern art in the United States.

After WWI breaks out, Kandinsky flees to to Moscow and later moves to Berlin to pursue teaching at the Bauhaus. Kandinsky produces abstract works reflecting on his appreciation of colour and form.
