(Excerpt from 'Kandinsky returns to Brussels after 100 years' posted on New Europe. Found here http://www.neurope.eu/article/kandinsky-returns-brussels-after-100-years)
An exhibition where European modernity meets a return to Russian tradition - in collaboration with the Russian Museum of Saint Petersburg.
One of the founding fathers of abstract art, the Russian painter, Wassily Kandinsky, is returning to Brussels, 100 years after his last exhibition in May 1913.
The exhibition has over 150 works, but Kandinsky provides a third of all the paintings on show. They show the artistic and intellectual complexity of a true genius who drew inspiration at the same time from the Russian symbolist movement, Greek culture, German metaphysics, orthodox spirituality and esotericism.
