LACMA Exhibits - van Gogh to KandinskyExpressionism in Germany and France: van Gogh to Kandinsky
Through September 14, 2014
The birth of modern art began in the early 20th century, when talented artists wanted to turn traditional ideas on their heads and get away from the Realism and Classicism of the previous century. Paul Cézanne, for example, was creating something brand new with each brushstroke. His works would influence Picasso and many other painters later down the line. These modern masters used vivid color and abstract techniques to reinvent what a work of art could be.
This is your chance to see how the Expressionist movement came to light, and how the artistic geniuses of this era created, shaped, and reinvented this new movement. The Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) is the perfect facility to house such a stunning exhibit. Take a tour through art history, and find out whether you most like Post-Impressionist, Fauvist, or Cubist paintings. Stroll along the exhibit, and bring home excellent dinner party conversation as you learn something new.
More than 40 artists will be represented, including van Gogh, Gaugin, Henri Matisse, Robert Delaunay and Paul Signac. Moving even more into the modern art world, you can witness the eye-catching works of artists such as Wassily Kandinsky, Ernst Ludwig Kirchner, Gabrielle Münter, and Franz Marc. With 90 paintings and 45 works on paper, this dazzling big-picture display will bring the momentum of this movement to life. See how art has been taking shape since modern art emerged, and how it\'s moved across Western Europe to the United States.
