“Woodblocks”

From Kandinsky to Hokusai. The opening exhibition of the most well kept secret gallery in Basel.

Like every Art Gallery,  every great artist must start somewhere, and in the ten years before he completed his fully abstract works, Kandinsky created figurative, evocative works on paper, largely in black and white using woodblocks. This traditional printmaking also held potential for artistic experimentations, widely used from German Expressionists (Dix, Beckmann, Kokoschka) to Japanese Ukiyo-e masters like Hokusai.

Discover these treasures in the jewel box of the MG-Galerie, in a 1414 building at the heart of Basel.
