Murnau-Staffelsee I (detail), 1908, oil on paper laid on board by Wassily Kandinsky (1866–1944), photo credit: The Ashmolean Museum of Art and Archaeology
(b Vidin, 31 Mar. 1885; d Paris, c.2 June 1930). Bulgarian-born painter and draughtsman. He led a wandering life, and although he acquired American citizenship when he moved to New York during the First World War, he is chiefly associated with Paris, where he belonged to the circle of émigré artists who gravitated around Chagall, Modigliani, and Soutine.
