Opera Gallery Dubai debuts a new viewing room
Modern Masters is the gallery’s new online exhibition featuring a curated selection of 15 museum-quality paintings and works
Opera Gallery has debuted Modern Masters, an online exhibition featuring a curated selection of 15 museum-quality paintings and works on paper by Henri Matisse, Fernand Léger, Kees Van Dongen, Pablo Picasso, Marc Chagall, Joan Miró and Alberto Giacometti.
This exhibition celebrates the spirit and genius of extraordinary artists whose insight and vision produced crowning achievements in modern art and culture. These artists strove to renew art, to liberate it both from copying nature and blind adherence to academic traditions. They formed the earliest avant-garde of the 20th century, which arose in France as a reaction to Impressionism.
These artists turned to bright colours, deliberate chromatic contrasts, rough, passionate brushwork, simplified form, light and shade without half-tones and smooth transitions.
Modern Masters is a journey of startling colour and form, groundbreaking endeavour, and bold leaps of the imagination. It captures the ebullience, idealism and confidence of artists as they freed themselves from tradition.
