Concerning the Spiritual in Art

by Wassily Kandinsky

Title Details

Unabridged Edition
Running Time
2 Hrs. 27 Min.
Written in 1911 by Russian painter and art theorist Wassily Kandinsky, Concerning the Spiritual in Art addresses the creative vision and cultural support required to produce the most edifying art. Using the pyramid as a metaphor, Kandinsky argues that only a rare few have reached the pinnacle of the prophetic, divine possibilities that are open to artists brave enough to move upward, beyond imitation, to new art that can be “the mother of future ages”. Those artist in the lower levels of this hierarchical pyramid often become mired in method, where the question of what the goal of an artist is becomes confused with the technical question of how the artist achieves the work. Kandinsky sets a high bar with this book, describing true artistry as a duty to humanity that should not be taken up lightly. This 2 Hr. 30 Min. audio book is available to download on Librivox.org.
