Kandinsky program at MMAM (02/02/2014)
The Minnesota Marine Art Museum in Winona is home to a growing number of American and European modern masterpieces. One of the recently acquired pieces is an enchanting, early painting by Wassily Kandinsky. Kandinsky is responsible for painting some of the world’s first purely abstract paintings, and his 1912 text titled, Concerning the Spiritual in Art, is recognized as one of the most influential art historical writings of the 20th century. The MMAM piece, titled Rapallo, Boote (pictured) from 1905, is a great reflection of the beginnings of this artist’s quest to explore spirituality utilizing only color and form.

In recognition of this piece, and the artist who would forever change art, the MMAM is hosting a talk titled “Wassily Kandinsky: Towards Abstraction.” The program, led by passionate Winona State University art historian Dr. Adrian Barr, will take place on Thursday, February 26 from 6-7 p.m. It is free and open to the public thanks to support by the Ernest and Sally Micek family in memory of W.B. “Bill” Gautsch.

About this program, Museum Director Andrew Maus states, “The Museum’s Kandinsky is one of the finest artistic achievements in the Museum, but it helps to know more about this amazing artist. This program aims to unlock the power of his life’s work to our audiences.”
