This exhibit is in collaboration with The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA), New York.
The Picasso to Warhol exhibit takes an in-depth look at each artists and their stylistic developments and highlights their role in the 20th century. They were the Modern Masters of the invention of Cubism, the development of Surrealism and brought us Abstract art. A few of my favorites are Henri Matisse Dance (I), 1909, Pableo Picasso, Girl Before a Mirror, 1932, Andy Warhol’s Self-Portrait, 1966 and Jackson Pollock’s, Number 1A, 1948.
