Monet, Father of Modernism?
I’m a little late to the game on this one, as the exhibit has already come and gone. Monet and Abstraction, at the Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza in Spain, featured 107 works of Monet’s and his successors, including Mark Rothko and Jackson Pollock. “We wanted to present a new way of seeing Monet. It’s also a way to help the public understand abstract art, often less accessible, through Monet, who everybody loves,” said Paloma Alarco, the curator. I’m fascinated by the idea of Monet’s influence on the abstract expressionists. I can see, in the water lilies pieces, the simplicity of color and design making abstraction not that far of a leap. What do you think?
Ha, Monet is Father of Modernism!! :) Last week I was visited that exhibition, it was awesome, enjoyable and entertainment too. Thanks mate!Posted by Barry Fisherman on 09/22 at 07:49 AM
