Landscape with Red Spots # 2 is the title of the 1913 painting by artist Wassily Kandinsky shown on this offset lithograph. Painted in Bavaria, it is an abstract depiction of the village of Murnau am Staffelsee and the mountains of the the Bavarian Alps surrounding it. The church tower, elongated as a geometrical shape, is the tower of the village church, St. Nikolaus.
Famed art collector Peggy Guggenheim acquired the painting for her personal art collection maintained at her palazzo in Venice. In 1970 she donated her palazzo to the Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation (created by her uncle), and in 1976 she donated her art collection to the Foundation.
This lovely offset lithograph was created to promote the Peggy Guggenheim Collection in Venice following its acquisition by the Foundation.
Russian-born, Wassily Kandinsky (1866-1944) is considered one of the pioneers of abstract art, and Landscape with Red Spots #2 vividly illustrates how he used abstract images in his paintings. This beautiful lithograph, with its bold colors and lines, will add interest to any room where it is placed.
