8 April - 10 August 2009. Russian-born Wassily Kandinsky was one of the 20th century's most important artists. Known by some as the "inventor of abstraction" he is more correctly acknowledged by many as a pioneer of both the Blue Rider and Bauhaus movements. This exhibition is a major retrospective of his work, including exceptional watercolours and some recent discoveries made in Russia.
Opened in 1977, around 6 million people pass throught the doors of the Centre Pompidou each year.
