Vasily Kandinsky: Around the Circle is NEW from the Guggenheim

"Many call the present state of painting 'anarchy'… [which] is thought, incorrectly, to mean unplanned upheaval and disorder. But anarchy is regularity and order created not by an external and ultimately powerless force, but by the feeling for the good…giving rise to an ever-increasing freedom that, in turn, opens the way for subsequent revelations." So wrote Vasily Kandinsky in 1912 and it's still a whopper of a philosophy, drawn here from Around the Circle, the catalog to the Kandinsky show on view now at the Guggenheim, organized chronologically up and down the Museum's famous ramp so that viewers can see the Russian painter's work forward or backward in the context of his travels through Europe as he was continuously uprooted throughout the early 20th century. Featured image is "Three Sounds" (1926).
