Galka Scheyer did not meet Wassily Kandinsky (1866-1944) until 1922. The fact that he was branded a Russian agitator in a Braunschweig newspaper did not shock her. He behaved correctly and forthcomingly towards her throughout his life, although she once confessed to him that she had found it difficult to access his works. He also praised her work in America to third parties. Both appreciated the expressive power of children who painted and who showed no sign of influence whatsoever.
