Kandinsky’s “First Abstract Watercolor 1910″ via abcgallery
After showing at Munich’s Städtische galerie im Lembachhaus and before moving to New York’s Guggenheim Museum (autumn 2009) the international retrospective of Wassily Kandinsky will spend the spring and summer months at the Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris (8 April – 10 August 2009). The exhibition, showcasing some hundred of Kandinsky’s paintings, will offer a comprehensive chronological survey of the Russian Artist’s contribution to modern art while investigating his formal and conceptual offerings to the course of 20th century abstraction. Kandinsky is noted for striving to give painting the freedom from nature he felt in music.

The international multi-venue exhibition is curated by Tracey Bashkoff, Associate Curator for Collections and Exhibitions at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum; Christian Derouet, Curator at the Musée national d’art moderne, Centre Pompidou, Paris; and Annegret Hoberg, Curator at the Städtische Galerie im Lenbachhaus, Munich. Karole Vail assisted with the organization of the New York presentation. Their collaborative efforts will bring together masterpieces that have rarely been in the same country, much less the same room. Masterpieces such as A Colorful Life (1907), and the Guggenheim’s Light Picture (1913) will be on display.
