Wassily Kandinsky

Kandinsky's work did not go unseen during Hitler's reign. Several of his best canvases appeared in the notorious "Degenerate Art" show - a massively well-attended exhibition lampooning Weimar Germany's crop of modern artists. Kandinsky taught at the Bauhaus school of art and architecture from 1922 until the Nazis closed it in 1933. That makes him a rather fine chap in my opinion.
