Back in the 19th century, Claude Monet painted the Impression, Sunrise and that’s really what gave the movement its name. Impressionism has been known as the first modern movement in painting, when artists began to concentrate on the world of imperfections, seeing it in a more realistic way, rejecting the traditional portrayal of idealized forms. More than 50 paintings of Monet have been selected for this exhibition. Together with other forms of art such as surrealism, abstract art, and expressionism, all will serve to unveil untold stories of the modernist era.
When we think of Vincent van Gogh, we think of The Starry Night or Sunflowers in paintings that are tangible, but now we get to view it in the most unconventional way thanks to groundbreaking technology.
FROM MONET TO KANDINSKY promises a mesmerizing experience with works of the most notable artists including Claude Monet, Edgar Degas, Paul Gauguin, Henri Rousseau, Henri Toulouse-Lautrec, Gustav Klimt, Paul Signac, Piet Mondrian, Amedeo Modigliani, Vincent van Gogh, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Juan Gris, Paul Klee, Edvard Munch, Kazimir Malevich, and Wassily Kandinsky.
Highlights of the 26-week exhibition include talks by European art experts and scholars and workshops with the support of the European Union. Just like the masters, you can throw in some paint with brush strokes while sipping on some wine. Of course, dances and musical performances will also be there for entertainment. Immerse yourself in this delightful journey and discover more about art through the eyes of European masters.
