The show will trace the artistic and spiritual evolution of this great visionary and revolutionary artist, from his colorful and figurative works of his art school period up to his most avant-garde pieces. Vasily Vasilievich Kandinsky was born in Moscow December 4, 1866, and four years later he moved with his family to Odessa, Germany. Here, besides attending a classical gymnasium (grammar school), he took drawing lessons as well. “I remember that drawing and a little bit later painting lifted me out of the reality”, he wrote later.
