Show synopsis Featuring ninety works that were decisive in Kandinsky's development as an artist and theorist, this catalog to the exhibit offers brilliant reproductions of the paintings as well as photographs from the artist's life and works not included in the exhibition. A variety of critical perspectives are offered by some of the world's leading Kandinsky scholars. Each of the artist's major periods is presented in the retrospective, including his work in Munich and early association with the Blue Rider Group around 1912, his work in Russia and then in Germany at the Bauhaus School in the 1920s and early 1930s as well as his years in Paris from 1933 to 1944 where he refined his theories of abstract art. This volume offers a dazzling record of the most important works by a modern art icon and an informative commentary on the artist's life and work.
