Wassily Kandinsky lived in Moscow from 1914 to 1921. In 1918 he was invited by both Soviet cultural bureaucrats and his colleagues to teach at the Svomas (Free State Art Schools), the radically oriented institutions that had replaced the traditional art schools swept away by the October Revolution. Two years later he was asked to head Inkhuk (The Institute of Artistic Culture) in Moscow.

At the age of fifty he married Nina Andreewsky, the beautiful young daughter of a Russian general. Bu (showing 500 of 2586 characters).
