Neue Galerie New York will present Vasily Kandinsky: From Blaue Reiter to the Bauhaus, 1910-1925, an exhibition of masterworks that explores the development of Kandinsky’s art over a crucial period of time: from the Blaue Reiter period into the pure abstraction and total environments of his Bauhaus years. Connecting art, music, and theater, this gathering of loans from private and public collections traces the evolution of Kandinsky’s concept of the Gesamtkunstwerk, or total work of art. Key works by Kandinsky’s artistic peers, including Albert Bloch, Marcel Breuer, Paul Klee, August Macke, Franz Marc, László Moholy-Nagy, Gabriele Münter, and Marianne von Werefkin will also be on display.

This exhibition is supported by an indemnity from the Federal Council on the Arts and the Humanities.

Vasily Kandinsky: From Blaue Reiter to the Bauhaus, 1910-1925 is supported by a generous grant from A. Lange & Söhne.
