Opening on Saturday, October 25th, “Cezanne and the Modern: Masterpieces of European Art” will makes its debut at the Atlanta High Museum of Art. The major traveling exhibition has been organized by the Princeton University Art Museum and will feature 50 modern masterworks, many of which have rarely been exhibited.
Assembled by the collector Henry Pearlman (1895-1974), the outstanding selection will feature a variety of Impressionist, Post-Impressionist, and Modern art. The astonishing collection was amassed through the 19th and 20th centuries, including perhaps the greatest collection of watercolors by Cézanne outside of France. Throughout the exhibit, experience masterpieces from Cézanne, van Gogh, Modigliani, Degas, Gauguin, Toulouse-Lautrec and others.
Leaving its home at Princeton University Art Museum for the first time since Pearlman’s death, this exhibition marks its very first international tour. The collection is renown for being one of the finest collections of Impressionist and Post-impressionist works to have been built in private hands.
Holcombe T. Green, Jr. director of the High, has released the following statement regarding the special exhibit:
“The High is honored to present this remarkable collection, which features works by many of the most famous artists of the Impressionist and Post-Impressionist movements. Having the opportunity to share these treasured, historic works with our visitors is a true joy.”
Dates run from October 25, 2015 through January 11, 2015. General admission for The High Museum of Art costs $19.50 per adult and $12.00 per child.
