Wassily Kandinsky is the subject of a major exhibition at the Royal Museums of Fine Art of Belgium.
Heralded as the founder of abstract art and considered one of the 20th century's most important artists, Kandinsky (1866-1944) was a native of Moscow but spent most of his life in Europe, becoming a French citizen in 1939.
The exhibition displays almost 150 of his works, many of them on loan from important Russian museums such as the State Museum of St Petersburg. The paintings on show were all painted by Kandinsky during the period from 1901-1922, two crucial decades in his groundbreaking career.
The exhibition also traces the visual and conceptual origins of Kandinsky’s work.
