    On returning to Munich Kandinsky returned to

    teaching at his art school, running The BlueRider artist guild, and overseeing the

    publication of The Phalanx. Kandinsky excelled

    during this time having artistic freedom but still

    some of his most valued works come from the

    eras previous. That freedom continued for the

    next few years until the Nazi party in Germany

    began implementing strict policies on culture inGermany during the 1930s. Kandinsky fled to

    Paris in 1934 at the heels of a Nazi power grab

    that destroyed all forms of culture deemed

    heretical or not aryan Christian. Consequently

    many of the prints of Kandinskys famous

    composition series were destroyed for being

    satanic and perverse in Nazi Germany.
