Wassily Kandinsky:

I prefer his early works, inspired by russian folklore, but this is my personal taste. He is an extremly important figure in art history and it's condidered that he made the first abstract painting.THe story of it is something like this: one day he sees in his workshop a very interesting work, but he doesn't know to who it belongs. When he came closer, he realise that is his own work, put it with upside down. From that momemt he decide to leave the figurative painting for abstract art :
Here you can see the evolution of his style: http://www.wikipaintings.org/en/wassily-kandinsky/st-george-and-the-dragon#close
