I recently visited the Vancouver Art Gallery, to check out their current exhibition. French Moderns, Monet to Matisse, highlights the pivotal role Paris played in modern art from 1850 to 1950.
Visitors can see works by many celebrated artists – not only those native to France, but also those who trained and exhibited there.
Here are some of the pieces that jumped out at me. We’ll start with Monet and make our way to Matisse.
I’ve never noticed someone signing their work anywhere other than the bottom corner. What a rebel!
French Moderns runs until May 20th if you’re interested in checking it out yourself.
