Kandinsky at the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao

The Biscay centre hosts a complete exhibition dedicated to the famous artist

The Guggenheim Museum Bilbao offers a unique opportunity to get up close to Vasily Kandinsky’s work (1866–1944) and his theory of the non-objective approach to art. It is one of the painters to which the Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation is most closely linked, as its founder, the industrialist Solomon R. Guggenheim, began collecting Kandinsky’s work in 1929, and came to meet the artist at the Bauhaus in Dessau the following year. This exhibition draws from the foundation’s extensive holdings to illustrate the full arc of Kandinsky’s seminal career.

The exhibition, which will remain open until May, aims to analyse the relationship between Kandinsky’s work and his contemporaries through more than 90 paintings, works on paper and sculptures.
