Milan's Palazzo Reale welcomes visitors to admire its exhibition of 80 Wassily Kandinsky works on loan from the Centre Pompidou in Paris. The canvases, on view until April 27th, narrate the artist's creative and personal life story; Kandinsky's most essential paintings comprise an important retrospective arranged chronologically.
Among the Russian painter's works being shown are fra cui Yellow-Red-Blue, and the extraordinary Accent in Pink, without forgetting, of course, his other breakthroughs: Old Town II, Sky Blue, In Grey, Joint Multicolor. The tine period of the works displayed spans from Kandinsky's debut to his peak, and covers his years in Russia, in Germany, and finally in France, when he lived an unforgettable experience within the Impressionist environment that had "the power to transport him out of both space and time."
Bowled over by an Impressionist exhibit in Moscow in 1896, Kandinsky left university to become a painter. He then developed his artistic voice, working in various genres and media, including music and theatre. His mission was that of defending what is spiritual in art, evidenced in the title of one of his foundational essays, Concerning the Spiritual in Art.
