Approaching Modernity

Approaching Modernity

Works from Impressionism to Early Modernism

On View at Findlay Galleries is a special presentation of late nineteenth and early twentieth century masterworks by Georges Braque, Childe Hassam, Albert Lebourg, Henri Matisse and others. The selection displayed demonstrates various artistic explorations of landscape and human form through a dynamic interplay of labor and leisure.

These artists’ works… offer a wide gamut of immediate expressions of modern life, and stem from a selection of an unwavering artistic exploration of form. The second half of the nineteenth century became notorious for the historical rejection by avant-garde artists of the secular and time-honored academic traditions.
