    Kandinsky's Color Theory:
    Wassily Kandinsky was fascinated with color and the meanings of the color that an artist would use to convey the message of their painting. Kandinsky was inspired by color itself and music to create a color theory that would explain what colors mean or are, and what colors represent if heard from a musical standpoint. He was fascinated with the power of music to be so emotional and powerful, and wanted to bring those same feelings to art.

    - 1883)
    Wagner was a composer most famous for his contributions to the opera. He wrote the scores, libretto, and stage directions for all of his operas. Some of his most famous works are The Ring Cycle, Tristan and Isolde, and Parsifal. Kandinsky references him as the first person to create Gesamtkunstwerk (total art). This of course is not true. Wagner himself, after writing Rheingold, the first opera of The Ring Cycle, attributed Beethoven to being the first to create total art. Beethoven's 9th symphony, last movement, includes Gesamtkunstwerk. Kandinsky and Wagner shared the opinion that the philosopher Schopenhauer had created total art. Kandinsky believed that music was the highest form of art and that any other art form would try to accomplish what music could do without any interpretation.

    Kandinsky’s subject matter, as well as his use of effervescent color so reminiscent of Russian folk art, suggests a nostalgic affection for the land of his birth. The title of the painting is also key; Kandinsky had experienced a synaesthetic epiphany whilst listening to a performance of Lohengrin. Painting, he believed, should aspire to be as abstract as music, with groups of colour relating to one another like sequences of chords in music.

    - 1951)
    Kandinsky's mention of Schoenberg is because he represents a tip of the ever progressing triangle. He reinvented the way music would be done completely redoing all the rules. He is the inventor of the 12 tone system. In 12 tone, each note has a set number and cannot be played again until all other notes are played. The system follows a matrix unique to each piece of music.
