Wassily Kandinsky was born December 1866 in Moscow, Russia, and died at the age of 77, on December 16, 1944. Kandinsky was a painter and an art theorist, who not only graduated from Grekov Odessa Art School, but also studied Law and Economics at the University of Moscow. Kandinsky is viewed as one of the first artists to paint a truly abstract piece, and taught basic design for beginners, and an advanced theory class at the Bauhaus.
Amedeo Modigliani was born July 12, 1884 in Tuscany, Italy, and died tragically at the age of 35, on January 24, 1920 in Paris France. Modigliani was an expressionist painter, deeply inspired by Picasso's African Period. He is mostly recognised for his portraiture and his nudes, but is known too for his relationship with the very beautiful French Artist, Jeanne Hébuterne, with whom he had a daughter, and who joined him in death January 26, 1920.
Camille Clovis Trouille was born October 24, 1889 in La Fère, France, and died September 24, 1975 in Paris, France. One of the lost Surrealists, Trouille has become not much more than a footnote in history. For Trouille, joining the Surrealist movement was purely for exposure, participating rarely with Surrealist events. Trouille's art works are an incredible insight into the world he perceived around him, of the beauty and corruption. NB: The Artist's Timeline is an overview of selected art works which have been chosen as an introduction to an artist.
