Carefully assembled from the amazing collection of the Museum of Modern Art in New York as part of a multi-year collaboration between MOMA and Atlanta’s High Museum of Art, Picasso to Warhol traces the development of modernism as seen through the brush strokes, sculptures, photographs, drawings, collages and silkscreen prints of artists that radically changed the way the world views art.
The exhibition, one of the largest collections of modern art to ever be exhibited in the Southeast, features more than 100 works of art from 14 of the 20th century’s most prolific artists: Pablo Picasso, Henri Matisse, Constantin Brancusi, Piet Mondrian, Fernand Léger, Marcel Duchamp, Giorgio De Chirico, Joan Miró, Romare Bearden, Alexander Calder, Jackson Pollock, Louise Bourgeois, Jasper Johns and Andy Warhol.
From Cubism and Surrealism to pop art, and all modern genres in between, Picasso to Warhol represents a veritable redefinition of the idea of art and what it could be. Mark your calendars now. This can’t-miss exhibition is on view through April 29, 2012.
