Following the Cézanne exhibition is a ten-minute installation presenting the major figure of abstraction: Vasily Kandinsky. The two painters, although separated by time, are not so different from each other. Both of them contributed greatly to the upheaval of painting, its codes and the way of thinking about art. This is a new relationship between the painter from Aix-en-Provence and the Russian painter, who traces the latter's career from his figurative beginnings, steeped in Russian folklore, to an experimental and totally liberated abstraction. He was largely inspired by the avant-gardes, such as Cézanne, from whom he took the motif of the Montagne Sainte-Victoire. Painter, poet and art theorist, we must not forget that Kandinsky is the founder of abstract art.
