Form Master

I told you yesterday I went to see the Kandinsky exhibit at the Phillips Collection which was absolutely amazing not just because it's rare to see an original but also because of the in-depth study into his art work {all images taken from the Phillips collection -  mine would've never made it justice!}.

 The main image of the exhibit called Painting with White Border was the results of many studies the artist made about the subject. He made the studies in paint and paper to see how form and color related to each other.

Here is the painting and the Audio Guide about the exhibit that explains way better than I can the amazing worj this artist made and about the beauty of this piece of art work.

Have a great day and make some plans to visit your local museum this weekend!


  1. You are so right. I haven't been to our museum in about a year. I'm going to go this month now for sure :)

  2. I definetely need to check out a few Costa Rican museums before I leave the country... this kandisnky exhibit sounds fab, beautiful paintings.

  3. Lovely.
    The most crucial thing I'd change about San Francisco is adding more museums. And I have to go back to the Asian Art Museum, thank you for reminding me.

  4. Honestly I can't remember the last time I went to a museum, I don't know why I'm just not that into them...

  5. ow, amazing.... its really important for us...
    amazing.... really really

    xoxo, dear

  6. Kandinsky is amazing! His use of colors is incredible! I love going to the museum! I finally broke down and bought a membership to the local art museum here in Austin and it's so worth it!

  7. These are wonderful! I love taking time to go to art museums - they are one of my favorite places to go in the city.
    Much love,

  8. hello!! :) thanks for sharing these beautiful pictures. i love art galleries.
    i like your blog too, am going to follow it. hope youll come follow mine too.
    have a great day

  9. I have to say I love going to the museum when there is a good exhibit- I think my all time favorite museum visit at my local museum was when Chuck Close exhibit was in town. loved every moment of it.

  10. I absolutely love exhibits like this, that feature the studies and work before the final piece. They provide such amazing insight to the painter's method!

  11. It looks like this place had some amazing exhibits. I am totally jealous. I would love to take a month and travel to all of the different museums that I possibly could.

  15. WHEE! i love art! i love when people give art a chance! i wish everybody would go to museums, but i know that idea is a bit out of range for some.

    so glad you enjoyed the exhibition!

  16. Really exciting!
    Lots of color, i like it :D

  17. that would be the perfect thing to do this weekend if i wasnt traveling. hot days call for museum and theaters!

  18. You are so right, Elie -- I need to get myself to a museum soon. These images are all so incredible!

  19. Love him. I mean LOVE him. I asked two Christmases ago for mileage so I could fly to NY in the dead of winter to see the huge exhibition at the Guggenheim. I walked in and started crying. Amazing.

  20. I love it when you share your trips. Kandinsky is one of my favourites. Thanks for sharing this with us.

    I hope you're well sweetie!
