Picasso and Mondrian, in the footsteps of Cézanne, are they responsible for perhaps the most decisive development in art history: the emergence of abstract art? This exhibition clearly shows how painting around 1900 accelerated the process.
The result is a fascinating story that brings you from the sensual and colorful fabrics of Cézanne through the brightly colored – sometimes humorous – works by Picasso to the extremely subtle painting of Mondriaan.
