WASSILY KANDINSKY Hand Signed Lithograph | I don't really see sound in this as much as his brighter ones. It is still good to see how he uses black and white in his images.

Kandinsky - he could see music. Different notes, riffs and instruments had their own color and shape. When I was in first grade our teacher gave us some paper and colored pencils and made us listen to jazz to see if we could see music like Kandinsky. I couldn't but now every time I see Kandinsky's art, I think of jazz - he was a big fan.
