EX­HI­BI­TION Masters of Mod­ern Art from the Her­mitage

At the end of a four-year cy­cle com­mem­o­rat­ing the cen­te­nary of the most ter­ri­ble war the world had known un­til that time, this ex­hi­bi­tion takes us back to the decade or two pre­ced­ing World War I, a pe­riod of un­prece­dented dy­namism in the his­tory of mod­ernism. One of the virtues of this ex­hi­bi­tion is that it deals with a rel­a­tively small num­ber of artists and that the most im­por­tant in­di­vid­u­als and move­ments are rep­re­sented by sev­eral pieces. CHRISTO­PHER ALLEN Art Gallery of NSW. Art Gallery Road, The Do­main, Syd­ney. ThursTues, 10am-5pm; Wed, 10am-10pm. Tick­ets: $16-$28. Book­ings: 136 246 or on­line. Un­til March 3.
