Kandinsky is the first major retrospective of Wassily Kandinsky's work to be shown in over two decades. Nearly 100 of his most important canvases from 1907 to 1942 are on display, organized chronologically into the artist's training, Blaue Reiter Group, traveling, Bauhaus and Parisian periods. Though only the paintings will travel, the venues--which hold the three largest public Kandinsky collections--are supplementing the exhibition at each stop with unique archival holdings including works on paper, manuscripts and photographs. Additional lecture and concert series will be held around the show in each city.
Kandinsky was jointly organized by the Städtische Galerie im Lenbachhaus, Munich (October 25, 2008-22 February 22, 2009), the Centre Pompidou, Paris (April 8-August 10, 2009) and the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York (September 18, 2009–January 31, 2010).
