Small Worlds

Saturday, I went to Milan with a friend to visit the exhibition of Vasilij Kandinsky. Curated by the Centre Pompidou of Paris, it is a major solo retrospected of 80 works of one of the fathers of abstract art.

Born in Moscow in 1866, at 29 Kandinsky decided to leave his law studies and study art in Munich. In the Europe perturbed by the Russian Revolution, the First World War and the Nazi German, Kandinsky moved several times, since the French citizenship in 1939. 
His creation of abstract work followed a long period of development and maturation of intense thought based on his artistic experiences. He called this devotion to inner beauty, fervor of spirit, and spiritual desire inner necessity, a central aspect of his art.

Among the pieces exhibited, what most impressed me is perhaps this series of 12 under the tittle Kleine Welten (Small Worlds) of 1922.

I feel inspired to write the stories behind these Little Worlds. 
Do you feel the same?


  1. dopo aver letto la sua biografia ho una voglia matta di andare a vedere questa mostra e soprattutto fare come lui: cioè lasciare tutto e dedicarmi a quello che mi piace.. della serie non è mai troppo tardi ;)!

    1. La mostra è abbastanza piccola, ma se ti capita di andare a Milano entro la fine di Aprile secondo me vale la pena. Non avevo mai visto nessuno dei suoi lavori ed è stato davvero bello.

  2. Yes. Please write the stories. I'd love to read them.

  3. Yes. Please write the stories. I'd love to read them.
