Rosenstock, Barb. THE NOISY PAINT BOX : THE COLORS AND SOUNDS OF KANDINSKY'S ABSTRACT ART
New York : Knopf, 2014
IL K-3, RL 3.6
When Vasily Kandinsky was given his first paint box, he had an experience that most of us cannot understand. The colors swirled together in his mind and he could hear music playing. He tried to understand the world as others saw it but he just couldn't. He suffered from a condition that made him hear colors and see sounds. Try as he might to learn to paint the way others did, he couldn't. And he became one of the first abstract painters of his time.
