A True Pioneer Of Abstract Art
Completed almost 150 years since the birth of Wassily Kandinsky (1866-1944), pioneer of abstract art and one of the leading avant-garde painters of all time, the exhibition traces his artistic and spiritual path through about 100 feet
The exhibition covers the key periods of Kandinsky’s life, from early years in Germany, through his years in Russia and ending with his stay in France, through fundamental works as Alte Stadt II (1902), Lied (1906) , Improvisation III (1909), Im Grau (1919), Gelb-Rot-Blau (1925) and Bleu de ciel (1940).
The journey is chronological, and develops along four sections: Munich, 1896-1914, Russia, from 1914 to 1921, Bauhaus, 1921-1933, Paris, 1933-1944.
“the purposes (and therefore, means) of nature and arts are essentially, organically and according to the laws of the Universe are various – and equally great… and equally strong”
– Kandinsky. 1912
