The 95 masterworks of Impressionist and modern European art in Monet to Dalí illuminate one of history's most compelling stories: how masters from Claude Monet and Degas to Piet Mondrian and Pablo Picasso opened the visual arts to wider and more varied spheres of experience, first in the militant realism of Gustave Courbet, then through direct response to nature in Impressionism, the embrace of subjective experience in Symbolist art, the magisterial formal inventions of Picasso and Georges Braque, the exploration of the subconscious in Surrealism, and the expressionism of the artists of Northern Europe. The heroic figuration of Auguste Rodin is here, as well as the cool formalism of De Stijl and the passion of Vincent van Gogh and Georges Rouault.
