An abstract art arisen in the twentieth century – is one of the most controversial trends in the art of painting. However, this period gave us some geniuses whose names entered into the world history. One of them is Wassily Kandinsky. From 19th June to 14th August in the state Hermitage Museum will be held a unique exhibition "Wassily Kandinsky. Two masterpieces".
The exhibition will include two main compositions of the artist — "Composition VI" and "Composition VII". These are one of the most famous works of Kandinsky, which are considered the peak of his creativity in the period before the First World War.
The exhibition is truly important because the last time these two works were shown in Japan in the far 2002 year. This summer, the State Tretyakov gallery in conjunction with the State Hermitage Museum will again bring together the paintings.
