Google Doodle for Kandinsky, Why Not?

On the surface, it seems the Independent is questioning today’s Google Doodle celebrating Wassily Kandinsky.

Kandinsky is Awesome!

Working in search, I’m adept at ignoring clickbait; I couldn’t ignore this.

He is one of my favorite artists. There is no reason to question his being honored with a Google Doodle, he is one of the most talented and notable artists I know of.

The Independent’s Clickbait Title

Upon reading the article, it seems they are not questioning his Google Doodle. The article itself (which I am not linking to due to not wanting to support such tactics) never even mentions anything which seems to indicate it should be questioned and is a tepid and impotent summary. The article is so weak, I wonder if it is programmatically generated.

What’s So Great About Kandinsky?

I’m glad you asked. Allow me to share some of my favorites: (the first painting is the work featured in the Google Doodle)
