Wassily Kandinsky: Between East and West

Last week we welcomed 15 young people to our fully-booked Insights into Art History workshop here at The Courtauld Gallery. They came from all over London to spend time with Natalia Murray an expert art historian in Russian 20th century art and The Courtauld’s collection of Kandinsky’s. After a quick introduction into the context Kandinsky was working in and his inspiration from artists to the West and East, we headed into the gallery to look and analysis Kandinsky’s works firsthand. A few observational drawings were made before heading back to the seminar room to try our hand at woodcut printing!

The next Insights workshop is on Saturday 5th December and will focus on Van Gogh.
