Vasily Kandinsky. *Picture with an Archer*. 1909. Oil on canvas. 68 7/8 x 57 3/8" (175 x 144.6 cm). Gift and bequest of Louise Reinhardt Smith

Join a discussion about the diverse aims of expressionist painting, and especially the contributions of two major artists: Ernst Ludwig Kirchner and Vasily Kandinsky. What cultural crises were artists and writers attempt to address? And why was expressionism rejected as fascism rose throughout Europe?

This session is led by Diana Bush.

Join us for lively conversations and engaging activities, facilitated by Museum educators, that offer insightful and unusual ways to engage with MoMA’s collection and special exhibitions.
