A more recent museum story is about my visit to the Vassily Kandinsky expo in Milan at the Palazzo Reale. I was very excited about this expo as I am a huge fan of Kandinsky’s work and let me tell you- I wasn’t disappointed at all.
As the father of Abstraction, the feeling expressed through colors is absolutely amazing! It was a “long” visit, not only because more than eighty pieces arrived from the Centre Pompidou, but also because the best experience about his work is stopping in front of each painting and allowing the colors to move and involve you. It’s a unique and suggestive experience!
Walking away from this expo I felt my artistic soul had been well fed, but still able to digest more… I didn’t have enough! (I am already planning a trip to Vercelli to see another Kandinsky expo!) All the pieces are exposed in chronological order, defining the different eras of his career and different painting influences. But believe me when I tell you that almost every piece is a surreal experience that touches all your senses.
For the occasion I wore a very special vintage piece: it is a military green cape that my lovely boss offered me as she didn’t use it anymore. It came from her family collection, so it was important to her. No need to tell you that the cape found a nice new home where it is beloved by its new owner! I paired it with & Other Stories hat, Sam Edelman ankle boots (my new favorite!), small Balenciaga bag and dotted tights from Topshop.
PS: Believe it or not, this was my first turn on the famous bull of the Vittorio Emanuele Gallery in Milan! LOL
