Past Exhibition

Fractured Lens is the first in a series of exhibitions that will pair works from the Chrysler collection with masterpieces from the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C.

The series, titled Collection Conversations, continues through 2015 and will include exhibitions devoted to the art of Henri Matisse (February, 2015), Arshile Gorky and Gustav Klimt (July, 2015); and Georgia O’Keeffe, (October, 2015).

Georges Braque and Pablo Picasso worked “like two mountaineers roped together” from 1909 to 1914 to forge a radically new art form. The two young painters swept aside age-old assumptions about three-dimensional perspective and redefined form in terms of its own geometric logic.

Their new aesthetic, Cubism, quickly attracted a host of avant-garde artists in Europe and America, and became one of the most influential art movements of the 20th century. Come see the evolution of a radical concept—a painting can capture more than one moment or one perspective at a time—in an exhibition that features four Picassos.

Fractured Lens includes a wide range of works by artists who adapted and varied this new visual language. It offers insight into both the power and the beauty of the founders’ art and the transformative effect it had on European and American modernism.

This free exhibition will be on view in Gallery 219 from Oct. 14, 2014 to Feb. 22, 2015. For a feature story/review of this exhibition from the Norfolk Virginian-Pilotclick here.
