Kandinsky for 50By Maha M. Saad • Sep 18th, 2009 • Category: Art
The Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum opened a new exhibit today as part of its 50th anniversary celebration featuring artwork by Vasily Kandinsky. Not only is Kandinsky known as a pioneer of abstraction and modernism in the art world, but he also served as an inspiration for the building of the Guggenheim Museum.
Born in Russia in 1866, Kandinsky was influenced by the many historical events that spanned his lifetime, mainly the Russian Revolution and both World War I and II. The exhibit features nearly 100 paintings from 1902 to 1942. Until January 13, 2010, people will be able to enjoy his work that explores freedom from nature.
