"Kandinsky&Russia" exhibition in Brussels (from the 8th of March to the 30th of June 2013)


After 100 years, Kandinsky returns to Belgium! Last time exhibited at the Georges Giroux Gallery in Brussels in May 1913, Kandinsky is exposed again within the exhibition “Kandinsky& Russia”.
 From the 8th of March up to the 30th of June, you can come and admire more than 150 works of art at the Royal Museums of Fine Arts of Belgium. Among these works of art there are about fifty paintings of Wassily Kandinsky (Moscow 1866 - Neuilly-sur-Seine 1944), next to some popular art works and paintings of Larionov and Malevitch. Most of the works come from very renowned Russian museums such as the Russian Museum of Saint Petersburg.
Wassily Kandinsky is one of the most influential painters of the 20th century. As the founding father of abstract art, he evolves, travelling from Munich to Paris with stops in Moscow and Berlin, from expressionism to surrealism without ever renouncing his Russian roots. This artist is an extremely multifaceted genius. He leaves behind an impressive oeuvre: more than 2,500 paintings, gouaches and aquarelles, but also prints, poetry, stage plays, philosophical essays, theoretical writings, etc.The exhibition “Kandinsky & Russia” takes you back to the Russia of the 1901 – 1922 period: from symbolism to avant-garde. A truly wonderful journey…  The exhibition will present a side of young Kandinsky before he left his motherland, unknown for Belgium.
The exhibition is subdivided in four separate parts with the following suggestive titles: «Experiencing the art of painting», «Listening to the art of painting», «Amidst nature» and «Kandinsky and mythology». It shows the artistic and intellectual complexity of a true genius who drew inspiration at the same time from the Russian symbolist movement, Greek culture, German metaphysics, orthodox spirituality and esotericism.

The exhibition will be open from the 8th of March to the 30th of June 2013. The address is Rue de la Régence 3, 1000 Bruxelles.
