Hammer Galleries in New York presents Modern Masters: Paris and Beyond exhibition
Modern Masters: Paris and Beyond
Location: Hammer Galleries - New York City.
October 29th, 2011 until January 21st, 2012.
Modern Masters: Paris and Beyond, features over twenty exceptional paintings by Marc Chagall, Fernand Léger, Henri Matisse, Joan Miró, Pablo Picasso and Kees van Dongen, as well as significant sculptures by Jean Dubuffet, Joan Miró, Henri Matisse and Alexander Calder. Including important works from the “années folles” or “crazy years” of 1920’s Paris through the decades following the Second World War, Paris and Beyond traces the development of these artists from their initial avant-garde beginnings through later decades of the 20th century as they moved ‘beyond’ Paris.
Individually, the artists featured in Paris and Beyond each made vital contributions to the avant-garde; overall as a movement they revolutionized modern art. The significance and appeal of these Modern Masters endures today.
An 86-page catalog with an introductory essay by noted art critic and art historian, Edward-Lucie Smith accompanies the exhibition. A virtual tour of the exhibition will also be available at www.hammergalleries.com.
