highlights from the European collection

7 Nov 2015 – 25 Apr 2016

Location: Modern gallery

Free admission

Modernists places major European paintings from the Gallery’s collection in dialogue with a changing selection of artworks from our rich holdings of modern prints, drawings and photographs.

Juxtaposing examples of post-impressionism, intimism, cubism, vorticism and avant-garde photography, the exhibition emphasises the diversity of artistic responses to the ferment of the early to mid 20th century.

Highlights include paintings by Pierre Bonnard, Georges Braque, Paul Cézanne, Giorgio Morandi and Pablo Picasso; photographs by Max Dupain, László Moholy-Nagy and Edward Steichen; prints by Sybil Andrews, Edward Wadsworth and Claude Flight; and drawings by Édouard Vuillard.
