The first presentation in the series, on January 12 at 8:00 PM MSK, will shed light on the important role of Solomon Guggenheim in the history of American abstract art. The businessman started to collect art in the 1890s and opened his first museum in 1939. The seminal moment in the history of abstract art was when Solomon Guggenheim started to include examples of non-objective art into his vast collection. He travelled to Europe to buy artworks directly from artists in the studios. His collection includes works of Kandinsky, Rudolf Bauer, Marc Chagall, Fernand Leger, Paul Klee, Oskar Kokoschka and Joan Miro.
