Cézanne Picasso Mondriaan
MUSEUM Gemeentemuseum, The Hague
DATE VISITED January 24, 2010
Picasso and Mondrian, in the footsteps of Cézanne, are they responsible for perhaps the most decisive development in art history: the emergence of abstract art? This exhibition clearly shows how painting around 1900 accelerated the process. The result is a fascinating story that brings you from the sensual and colorful fabrics of Cézanne through the brightly colored – sometimes humorous – works by Picasso to the extremely subtle painting of Mondriaan.
