After Impressionism: Inventing Modern Art

17 March 2023

The influence of three giants of the turn of the 20th century, Cézanne, Van Gogh and Gauguin, was not confined to Paris, but spread throughout Europe. This exhibition at the National Gallery in London (25 March–13 August) reveals how these figures became a touchstone for artists from Klimt to Kandinsky, who in turn shaped new movements across the continent. The show brings together more than 100 works, all created between 1886–1914. Highlights include Klimt’s Pair of Lovers (1913–15), Cézanne’s Mont Saint-Victoire (1902–06) and Van Gogh’s Snow-Covered Field with a Harrow (1890), as well as early abstract works by Kandinksy and Piet Mondrian. Find out more on the National Gallery’s website.
