Picasso - Musée Picasso

tate gallery 1 of 7 Paul Klee is a giant of twentieth-century art and one of the great creative innovators of the time. Witty, inventive, magical, his exquisite paintings resist easy classification. He is mentioned in the same breath as Matisse, Picasso and his Bauhaus contemporary Kandinsky. At Tate Modern this autumn, you can rediscover Klee’s extraordinary body of work and see it in a new light. The EY Exhibition: Paul Klee – Making Visible begins with the artist’s breakthrough during the First World War, when he first developed his individual abstract patchworks of colour that later became characteristic of his ‘magic square’ paintings. The heart of the exhibition will focus on the decade Klee spent teaching and working at the Bauhaus, the hotbed of modernist design. The 1930s then brought about radical changes. Klee’s works, presented in a symphony of yellow, blue and red, create an inexplicable impression of joy, of music and of freedom.

Richard Hamilton One of the most influential British artists of the 20th century, Richard Hamilton (1922–2011) is widely regarded as a founding figure of pop art, who continued to experiment and innovate over a career of 60 years. Tate Modern presents the first retrospective to encompass the full scope of Hamilton’s work, from his early exhibition designs of the 1950s to his final paintings of 2011. This exhibition explores his relationship to design, painting, photography and television, as well as his engagement and collaborations with other artists. Hamilton is best known for his pivotal role in the birth of pop art, including the groundbreaking installation Fun House 1956. This is a knockout exhibition. Richard Hamilton is curated by Mark Godfrey, Curator of International Art, Tate Modern, Paul Schimmel and Vicente Todolí with Hannah Dewar, Assistant Curator, Tate Modern. Exhibition organised by the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía in collaboration with Tate Modern.

Peter Blake: Pop Blake’s work carries a distinct and uniquely British Pop aesthetic. The emergence in the 1960s of a proliferating youth culture meant that postcards, magazines and record sleeves became legitimate source materials for art-making. Blake regarded the mass produced products of the new pop culture as descendents of the popular arts of the past. Blake’s series of girlie pin-up works registered the mass availability of printed media and the increasingly liberal society it serviced. From an early age Blake enjoyed weekly family outings to wrestling matches. While Blake’s works often stylistically refer to fairground art, equally they often reference contemporary art trends – as in paintings such as Got a Girl 1960-1 and The First Real Target 1961 which alludes to American post-painterly abstraction.

palazzo grassi Guide to Impressionism | Paintings by Monet, Degas and Renoir The term 'Impressionist' was first used as an insult in response to an exhibition of new paintings in Paris in 1874. A diverse group of painters, rejected by the art establishment, defiantly set up their own exhibition. They included Monet, Renoir, Pissarro and Degas. What characterises Impressionism for most people nowadays, is both the subject matter and the technique. Landscapes, and scenes from modern urban and suburban life painted in bright, pure colours are typical. Impressionists often began (and sometimes completed) their paintings outdoors rather in a studio. Today, the Impressionist paintings are some of the best-known and best-loved in the collection.
