Changing times – New worlds,

Perhaps the truest thing that can be said about art is that it is above all the child of its time. As times change, new worlds are created. That has been true for centuries and it still holds true today. In this exhibition the Gemeentemuseum in The Hague showcases the very best it has to offer. Each exhibition room presents a different world in images, from the wild ipressionism of Kandinsky to the soft, sweet hues of Monet’s Wisteria and the underlying tension of Magic Realists like Carel Willink and Pyke Koch. Famous names jostle for attention: Egon Schiele, Vincent van Gogh, Claude Monet, Pablo Picasso, Piet Mondrian, Paul Cézanne, Wassily Kandinsky, Ernst Ludwig Kirchner, Jan and Charlie Toorop, Constant, Jan Schoonhoven, Louise Bourgeois, Francis Bacon and Marlene Dumas. It is rare to see so many art treasures displayed at once.
