Kandinsky at the Guggenheim Bilbao museum

The Guggenheim museum in Bilbao presents an exhibition of Kandinsky, one of the artists to whom the Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation is most closely linked as its founder began collecting his work in 1929. Today the Guggenheim owns more than 150 pieces by Vasily Kandinsky.


This comprehensive exhibition devoted to an essential artist consists of paintings and works on paper and traces Kandinsky's aesthetic development throughout his career.


Vasily Kandinsky (Moscow, 1866–Neuilly-sur-Seine, France, 1944) is one of those responsible for renewing art in the early 20th century. Kandinsky sought to release painting from its bonds to the natural world and, in doing so, discovered a new theme that was to occupy him for the rest of his life, based solely on the artist's "inner necessity".
