After Impressionism: Inventing Modern Art

Westminster Quaker Meeting House and the National Gallery

Coffee · Lecture · Lunch · Exhibition

5th April 2023

In the decades between 1880 and the outbreak of the First World War, the world was changing quickly, and so was the art. We will be exploring the work of three giants of the era: Paul Cézanne, Vincent van Gogh and Paul Gauguin, as well as tracing the influences they had on their peers and other artists across Europe. We will see the creation of a new, radical, modern art pushing tirelessly into the future, freed from the shackles of tradition. The exhibition includes some of the most iconic works of art of the period, including paintings by Klimt, Kokoschka, Matisse, Picasso, Mondrian and Kandinsky. Important loans have come to the exhibition from all over the world, bringing together the best of Expressionism, Cubism and Abstraction.

The lecture by Tom Parsons will prepare you for the exhibition so that you can make the most of your time in the gallery and gain the greatest insight into the works. Please join us for lunch afterwards at Fumo, Covent Garden.
