Designed and made for the exhibition French Moderns: Monet to Matisse, 1850-1950. The exhibition presents sixty paintings and sculptures from the Brooklyn Museum’s renowned European permanent and long-term loan collections. The works in French Moderns exemplify the avant-garde movements that defined Modern art from the late-nineteenth to early-twentieth centuries, tracing a formal and conceptual shift from depicting the pictorial to evoking the idea, from a focus on naturalism to the ascendance of abstraction. The exhibition includes examples of the key movements of the period—Realism, Impressionism, Post-Impressionism, Symbolism, Fauvism, Cubism and Surrealism—that emerged in and around Paris between 1850 and 1950 and quickly became part of the dominant Western canon.
French Moderns: Monet to Matisse, 1850–1950 is organized by the Brooklyn Museum. It is presented at the Vancouver Art Gallery from February 21 - May 20, 2019.
