Madeline has designed a new Limited Edition set of napkins in conjunction with the Neue Galerie exhibition Vasily Kandinsky: From Blaue Reiter to the Bauhaus, 1910-1925. Open from October 3, 2013 to February 10, 2014, the exhibition explores the development of Kandinsky’s art over a crucial period of time, spanning from the Blaue Reiter period to his Bauhaus years.
