Color Study: Squares with Concentric Circles

Today's Google doodle marks the 148th birthday of Wassily Kandinsky. Kandinsky was an influential artist who was born in Russia, later moved to Germany where he taught at the Bauhaus school, and lived his later years in France. He is credited as one of the very first abstract painters, focusing more on shapes and colors than on representing figures, landscapes, or other more traditional subjects for paintings. One example of this is his Color Study: Squares with Concentric Circles. He painted this in 1913; it is now housed at the Stadtische Galerie in Lenbach, Germany. Here is a LEGO rendition of Color Study: Squares with Concentric Circles that Bill Vollbrecht made for Legoland California and another (perhaps also by Bill?) on display at Legoland Windsor
