Van Gogh to Kandinsky | Symbolist Landscape in Europe 1880-1910

Posted June 29, 2012 in Events

This exhibition is a collaboration between the National Galleries of Scotland, the Van Gogh Museum, Amsterdam and the Ateneum Museum, Helsinki. This will be the first exhibition dedicated to Symbolist Landscape in Europe, the movement that developed after Impressionism as artists all over Europe developed a more imaginative, emotional, and often Romantic approach to landscape painting – a route which takes them from the naturalism of Impressionism to Expressionism, and the edges of Abstraction.

The exhibition will present a wide range of poetic and suggestive paintings of nature from about 1880-1910. It will focus on major artists of the avant-garde such as Paul Gauguin, Vincent Van Gogh and Edvard Munch but will also introduce you to a group of less well known artists from Scandinavia and elsewhere in Europe.

The exhibition includes works by M.K.Ciurlionis.
