Published on the occasion of the Kandinsky Memorial Exhibition, Museum of Non-Objective Paintings [March 15 - May 15, 1945]. The Guggenheim Foundation presented a survey of the artist's paintings and writings, arranged and edited by Museum Director Hilla Rebay. The exhibition was organized by Rebay, in her capacity as curator of the collection of Solomon R. Rebay was the founder of the Museum of Non-Objective Painting, the forerunner to today's Solomon R. Kandinsky once said that The more frightening the world becomes.The more art becomes abstract. Working your way through his beginnings of his career to the end in this compendium, you can only conclude that as the world must have become more and more frightening to him.
