European Modern: Master Artists from the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts
Jan 25, 2014 – Aug 23, 2014VMFA Statewide Partners: Taubman Museum of Art, Roanoke, VA
Thirty-six works from the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts make up a remarkable new traveling exhibition that will make its first stop at the William King Museum in Abingdon, Virginia and then to a final venue at the Taubman Museum of Art in Roanoke, Virginia. The exhibition offers drawings and paintings from the 19th and 20th centuries that represent generations of important European artists as they journeyed away from the defined edges of Neoclassicism and toward the uninhibited marks of the modern era. Artists on view include English painters and German Expressionists, as well as Impressionists such as Edgar Degas, Paul Cézanne, Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, and Vincent van Gogh. The works span nearly 150 years, from an 1816 drawing by Jean August Dominique Ingres to a 1960s watercolor by Georgio Morandi.
