what art is and ought to be I didn't know much about Kandinsky, but after learning about his theory of precise abstract forms in The Painter's Secret Geometry: A Study of Composition in Art, I was inspired to say the least. Concerning the Spiritual in Art was an incredible read! I was pleasantly surprised by this powerful, lucid manifesto as artists are not always as eloquent with words as they are with images. This book takes concentration to understand, but that's typical for art theory books, right?! Here, teh famous Russian Expressionist calls the artist to proceed inward to cultivate the abstract expressions of the inner spirit and away from material representation.
