Montblanc pays homage to Russian-born painter Wassily Kandinsky, one of the most influential abstract painters of all time, with the new Kandinsky Artisan Edition pens. The prolific painter is credited with creating one of the first truly abstract works of art, and his legacy is honoured with Montblanc’s Limited Edition 77 and Limited Edition 3 fountain pens. The pens’s visual motifs are inspired by the Kandinsky’s 1925 masterpiece Yellow-Red-Blue. The solid-gold Limited Edition 77 features a lacquer barrel with color gradations similar to those of the painting. Its skeletonized cap is decorated with geometric shapes and colorful lacquer inlays, while the artist’s signature adorns its base. Along with its cap, the white-gold Limited Edition 3’s barrel also gets the skeletonized treatment. Crowning the cap is a .11-carat Montblanc diamond encircled by two rings of smaller diamonds.
