Kandiskij in mostra a MilanoCurrent exhibition from 17 December 2013-4 May 2014.

At Palazzo Reale in Milan you can visit the exhibition with more than 100 works by Kandinsky: from the first works to the last ones in Paris.

Known as the creator of abstract art, Kandinsky began his career painting brush landscapes. Throughout his career he was centered on the use of colors, often dividing them between primary and secondary; each color was considered second to intrinsic properties. For example, yellow was considered irrational, crazy and exciting enough to be compared to the sound of a trumpet.
The music accompanies the work of Kandinsky and his works were often inspired and also want to inspire sounds (Kandinsky explained the use of color often with the use of musical metaphors).

Kandinsky came also to relate colors with geometries (yellow is compared to the triangle) saying that the perfect combination of color and form, and then the result would have enhanced the emotion aroused by the work.

Kandisky Art was full of mystical sense, a revolution that was lately understood.
