The first volume of the catalogue raisonn comprises 1236 works from all periods of Vasily Kandinsky's career. It begins with an addendum of fifteen watercolors and two oil-paintings, which were not included in the previous four volumes of the catalogue raisonn, followed by India ink drawings, sketches and individual works. There is complete provenance, exhibition history and bibliography for each catalogue entry as well as numerous commentaries discussing date, iconography and related works. Vivian Barnett has written a text on the artist's discovery of his own drawings in the early 1930s and his efforts to exhibit them during his lifetime. The volume concludes with a comprehensive list of one-person and group exhibitions, a selective bibliography and indexes. A second volume, which is devoted to Kandinsky's thirty-five sketchbooks that have remained intact, will appear in spring 2007.
