From the Press Release:
“A century after the outbreak of World War I, this exceptional exhibition of over one hundred paintings and an equal number of drawings and prints executed by the greatest avant-garde figures of the time, sheds new light on the extraordinary artistic cross-currents presiding over the major developments in modern art that took place in Germany and France between 1900 and 1914. First on view in Switzerland at the Kunsthaus Zürich, and then at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts’ showing of the exhibition will be distinguished not only for its exclusive presentation of major works, but also for its wealth of documentation, including more than 200 photographs, postcards, stereographic images, magazines and newspapers focussing on Paris in 1900, as well as chronicling World War I, providing a broad historical context for this period of intense creativity.”
The exhibition is organized by the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) and the Kunsthaus Zürich, in collaboration with the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts.
