Kandinsky was without doubt the most important and influential figure of the Bauhaus in the 1920’s, not only as a result of his painting, and his formative role in the whole concept of abstract art, but also because of his ability to express his ideas in words. In 1926 he issued Point and Line to Plane which became one of the seminal texts of the Bauhaus approach to abstraction. His compositions of this period are amongst the great statements of his art in the graphic medium and key works in all of 20th century graphic artwork.
