Modern Times spans a period of 90 years, from the late 19th to the 20th century, and features works by such European masters as Pierre Bonnard, Constantin Brancusi, Georges Braque, Paul Cézanne, Salvador Dalí, Edgar Degas, Paul Gauguin, Vincent van Gogh, Vasily Kandinsky, Paul Klee, Édouard Manet, Henri Matisse, Joan Miró, Claude Monet, Pablo Picasso, Camille Pissarro, and Auguste Renoir.
The Curator in Charge of this exhibition is Tel Aviv Museum director Suzanne Landau, who convinced the Philadelphia museum to send the exhibit directly to Tel Aviv after seeing it this summer at Palazzo Reale in Milan. In record time, Landau concluded the negotiations and oversaw the transfer and display of the works of art, in her crowning achievement before her imminent retirement.
Modern Times represents divergent time periods and art movements, including Impressionism, post-Impressionism, Cubism and more. The exhibition, whose works are displayed in chronological order, brings together landscapes, cityscapes, village scenes, interiors, still lives, portraits and sculptures in different media.
The exhibition Modern Times runs at Tel Aviv Museum of Art’s Sam and Ayala Zacks Pavilion until February 2, 2019.
