ABOUT EXHIBITION

The exhibition “FROM MONET TO KLIMT” consists of over 130 carefully chosen main works of Oscar-Claude Monet, Vincent Willem van Gogh and Gustav Klimt, shown in chronological order, putting an era of art history under the same roof. Those three geniuses, each on their own way, were pioneers in making postulates and direction of change from ‘classical’ into ‘modern’ art. Their vision and talent followed by controversy and non-acceptance of society at that time are our inspiration of believing that art is a free spirit land of imagination and through this digital seeing each of us will be having unique opportunity to:

• See the patterns and canvas layers of the impressionism of Monet
• Feel the Van Gogh’s post-impressionism colors and vision of art
• Understand the controversial Art Nouveau and symbolism of Klimt

GUSTAV KLIMT

Gustav Klimt (July 14, 1862 – February 6, 1918) was an Austrian symbolist painter and one of the most prominent members of the Vienna Secession movement. Klimt is noted for his paintings, murals, sketches, and other objets d’art.

Klimt’s primary subject was the female body and his works are marked by a frank eroticism.In addition to his figurative works, which include allegories and portraits, he painted landscapes. Among the artists of the Vienna Secession, Klimt was the most influenced by Japanese art and its methods.

OSCAR-CLAUDE MONET

Oscar-Claude Monet (14 November 1840 – 5 December 1926) was a founder of French Impressionist painting, and the most consistent and prolific practitioner of the movement’s philosophy of expressing one’s perceptions before nature, especially as applied to plein-air landscape painting.

The term “Impressionism” is derived from the title of his painting. Impression, soleil levant (Impression, Sunrise), which was exhibited in 1874 in the first of the independent exhibitions mounted by Monet and his associates as an alternative to the Salon de Paris. 

VINCENT WILLEM VAN GOGH

Vincent Willem van Gogh (30 March 1853 – 29 July 1890) was a Post-Impressionist painter. He was a Dutch artist whose work had a far-reaching influence on 20th-century art. His output includes portraits, self-portraits, landscapes and still lifes of cypresses, wheat fields, and sunflowers.

He drew as a child but did not paint until his late twenties; he completed many of his best-known works during the last two years of his life. In just over a decade, he produced more than 2,100 artworks, including 860 oil paintings and more than 1,300 watercolors, drawings, sketches, and prints.
