Paris, city of Modern Art
MUSEUM Gemeentemuseum, The Hague
DATE VISITED January 15, 2012
Forty masterpieces from Paris’ Centre Pompidou forming an overview of artists in the first half of the 20th century.
Beautiful works by everyone you could have imagined. What do they have in common: Kandinsky, Appel, Giacometti, Léger, Delaunay, Picasso, van Dongen, Modigliani, Warhol, Lippschitz, Arp, Hartung and more. The influence of the American new movements from the 60’s, such as pop art, also receive attention because this considerably crumbled Parisian hegemony as a global art city.
