Kandinsky in Brussels



Lately, I have been spoiled by impromptu visits of dear friends. I talked about Marie-Anne hopping in from Greece in my previous post and last weekend Laurence showed up in Brussels which made for an unforgettable weekend. When asked where she is from,  Laurence always answers that she keeps moving up North;  she is originally from Pau in Southern France, lived in B (Biarritz or Bordeaux, I forgot which) for a while, moved to  Paris and came to Brussels at the end of the 80's. She has now been  living in Sweden for almost 10 years with her Swedish husband and three kids.

Laurence is an artist, a painter herself and we had such a great time visiting Kandinsky in Brussels. No pictures allowed at the exhibition but I am hoping that these i-phone shots do not qualify.
Truly wonderful and interesting exhibit, which places the artist's work in the greater Russian context. Wonderful explanations, beautiful catalog. In short: well worth a visit, highly recommended.
