A Caldecott Honor Book Vasya Kandinsky was a proper little boy: he studied math and history, he practiced the piano, he sat up straight and was perfectly polite. And when his family sent him to art classes, they expected him to paint pretty houses and flowersa€”like a proper artist. But as Vasya opened his paint box and began mixing the reds, the yellows, the blues, he heard a strange sounda€”the swirling colors trilled like an orchestra tuning up for a symphony! And as he grew older, he continued to hear brilliant colors singing and see vibrant sounds dancing. But was Vasya brave enough to put aside his proper still lifes and portraits and paint . . . music? In this exuberant celebration of creativity, Barb Rosenstock and Mary GrandPrAc tell the fascinating story of Vasily Kandinsky, one of the very first painters of abstract art. Throughout his life, Kandinsky experienced colors as sounds, and sounds as colorsa€”and bold, groundbreaking works burst forth from his noisy paint box. Backmatter includes four paintings by Kandinsky, an authora€™s note, sources, links to websites on synesthesia and abstract art.
