    Default Wassily Kandinsky

    Wassily Kandinsky

    Sheer genius. One of the most brilliant (popularized) artists of all time. He was a lawyer until turning to painting at midlife.



    What type do you think he was?

    Default Re: Wassily Kandinsky

    Quotes from Wassily Kandinsky (1866–1944) credited as having created the first abstract watercolour.

    Objects damage pictures.

    The more frightening the world becomes ... the more art becomes abstract.

    Colour is the key. The eye is the hammer. The soul is the piano with its many chords. The artist is the hand that, by touching this or that key, sets the soul vibrating automatically.

    There is only one road to follow, that of analysis of the basic elements in order to arrive ultimately at an adequate graphic expression.

    Of all the arts, abstract painting is the most difficult. It demands that you know how to draw well, that you have a heightened sensitivity for composition and for colors, and that you be a true poet. This last is essential.

    All methods are sacred if they are internally necessary. All methods are sins if they are not justified by internal necessity.

    Each period of a civilisation creates an art that is specific in it and which we will never see reborn. To try and revive the principles of art of past centuries can lead only to the production of stillborn works.

    The true work of art is born from the "artist": a mysterious, enigmatic, and mystical creation. It detaches itself from him, it acquires an autonomous life, becomes a personality, an independent subject, animated with a spiritual breath, the living subject of a real existence of being.

    The artist is not a "Sunday child" for whom everything immediately succeeds. He does not have the right to live without duty. The task that is assigned to him is painful, it is a heavy cross for him to bear.

    His work is amazing. I saw some of it at the Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris.

    Reading about him, I see lots of Ti, Si, and Fe. INTj would be my guess. It's fitting that abstract art was founded by a Ti type.

    On Amazon.com they have a list of "Statistically improbable phrases" for each book, which excellently illustrate how vocabulary relates to type.

    For Kandinsky they are:

    outer expediency, independent straight lines, first abstract picture, own inner sound, galerie thannhauser, see this edition, synthetic art, untitled statement, dual sound, inner evaluation, painterly form, cold repose, great utopia, concrete art, nonobjective painting, abstract watercolor, internal necessity, most concise form, inner effect, pure painting, absolute sound, parallel octaves, white crack, purely pictorial
    Crazy, no?

    was looking for this. Didn't see it?

    On Kandinsky, his work reminds me of Miro. Miro is my INFj friend's favorite artist. I prefer Kandinsky as it appears more structured and settles more with me, while it seems obvious that my friend would prefer the "looser" look and feel of Miro.

    I could see INTj for him. I tend to see ESTjs as more "scattered". I have met/read about creative ESTjs and they have all given me this impression with their art. The quotes listed seem very precise and it seems clear to him what his idea of art is.

    Rational and logical, I'd say. I think LII would be my first guess.
    But, for a certainty, back then,
    We loved so many, yet hated so much,
    We hurt others and were hurt ourselves...

    Yet even then, we ran like the wind,
    Whilst our laughter echoed,
    Under cerulean skies...

    Ha, I forgot the book.

    He uses a lot of Fe in his writing, but I don't think there's any chance of him being an Fe type. Apparently he was very reclusive.

    ISTP is more likely than ESTj.

    But he may not be ISTp.
