WINDOWS ON THE CITY
THE SCHOOL OF PARIS, 1900 - 1945
This exhibition includes some of the most influential paintings and sculptures of the last century, created by artists such as Constantin Brancusi, Georges Braque, Robert Delaunay, Amedeo Modigliani, and Pablo Picasso.
Spanning from the first years of the twentieth century through World War II, the exhibition charts the key movements of modernism, from Cubism to Orphism to Surrealism, and the artists who came to be known as the École de Paris (School of Paris).
Though diverse, the artistic visions represented in this exhibition manifest a common impulse to eschew conservative aesthetics and transform perceptions of everyday life in a modern city. Among the masterpieces featured are Picasso’s Le Moulin de la Galette (1900), Modigliani’s Nude (1917), and Marc Chagall’s Green Violinist (1923 - 24).
On display from April 22 to October 23, 2016 at the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao in Spain.
