The exhibition “Kandinsky’s Time” introduces the general public to engravings and lithographs from the creative heritage of the world-famous artist Vasily Kandinsky, as well as his friend and colleague in the “Blue Horseman” group, Franz Mark and other German expressionists of this period: Oscar Kokoschka, Mark Pekhshtein, Erich Heckel, Paul Klee et al.
Vasily Vasilievich Kandinsky (1866-1944) - one of the most famous Russian artists in Europe, an outstanding Russian painter, graphic artist, theorist of fine art, one of the founders of abstract art.
Kandinsky’s life and work were closely connected with Germany. The artist was born in Moscow, however, he lived most of his life abroad. Kandinsky turned to painting at a conscious age. At the age of 30, having left his career as a lawyer, he moved to Munich, whose art schools enjoyed a high reputation in Russia at that time. In Munich, Vasily Kandinsky meets with German expressionists - colleagues, works on his first Improvisations and concocts, and then realizes a completely new project: the publication of the artistic almanac “The Blue Horseman”. Art historians emphasize that the "Blue Horseman" was a turning point for Kandinsky in the creative development of the artist. The artists of this association were characterized by an abstract language of form and color.
