Vacations & Travel - - Travel Talk -

From 13 Oc­to­ber 2018, the Art Gallery of New South Wales will play host to 65 of the world’s best mod­ernist paint­ings. Trav­el­ling from the State Her­mitage Mu­seum of St Peters­burg, the paint­ings pro­vide an in­sight into the lib­er­a­tion of their Euro­pean and Rus­sian cre­ators. Rang­ing from the late 19th cen­tury to the early

20th cen­tury, the paint­ings also speak to the State Her­mitage Mu­seum as an in­sti­tu­tion and the story of Rus­sian col­lec­tors Sergei Shchukin and Ivan Moro­zov who cham­pi­oned and pub­li­cised the in­no­va­tive works of the French mod­ern mas­ters and from whose pri­vate col­lec­tions many of the works have been sourced. High­lights from the Mas­ters of Mod­ern Art from the Her­mitage ex­hi­bi­tion will in­clude Monet’s Poppy Field, Pi­casso’s Ta­ble in a Café and Mat­tisse’s Nymph and Satyr. There will also be sig­nif­i­cant works from Rus­sian con­tem­po­raries Kandin­sky and Male­vich. The ex­hi­bi­tion will run un­til 3 March 2019. art­gallery.nsw.gov.au
