Mid C19th - Painting

Towards Modernity

This exhibition delves into the extraordinary trajectory of Modernism in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. The changes in society at the end of the nineteenth century were reflected in artists’ work.

The Impressionists found a new method of painting traditional subjects, the Pointillists explored colour theory and the Cubists redefined the concept of form. This was an remarkable period for art in which change was embraced and the long accepted canon challenged with an inquisitive spirit.
