Dear friends of Gallery&Studio,
As we all gather our strength and inner resources during this most difficult period, we offer our good wishes to you and our hopes that all this will end soon. In the meantime, we have opened a section on our website called Art in Quarantine. It is a pop-up virtual gallery for those who wish to share their creative response to this catastrophe with others. Please feel free to submit an image, poem or video.      Jeannie McCormack

Wassily Kandinsky

1866 – 1944

Kadinsky was a Russian painter, born in Moscow, who is recognized as the first to paint a body of abstract work.  He taught law at the University of Dorpat and did not start painting until he was 30.  After some time in Germamy, Kandinsky moved to France in 1933 where he lived and painted until his death.  He became a French citizen in 1939.
