Centro Cibeles will present as of October 20, 2015, one the most important retrospective exhibitions dedicated to the pioneer of abstract art Wassily Kandinsky (1866-1944). The exhibition , curated by Angela Lampe – art historian and curator of the Pompidou Centre in Paris – is a large monographic retrospective that features some 100 major works of art by Kandinsky.
The exhibition that was already presented in Milan last year, offers a deep exploration of the Centre Pompidou Collection, that together with the Lenbachhaus Museum in Munich and the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York are the three international institutions holding the major part of Kandinsky’s works, with the exception of the pieces that remained in Russia when he left in 1921.
On view, many of his classical works divided in four sections, that explore his developments from the beginnings in Germany, the years in Russia and then in France, with must be seen works such as Alte Stadt II (1902), Lied (1906), Improvisation III (1909), Im Grau ( 1919), Gelb-Rot-Blau (1925) and Bleu de ciel (1940).
The exhibition will run from October 20, 2015, until February 28, 2016, at Centro Cibeles in Madrid.
