The MODERNS. Art from the Netherlands
28 January '12 - 26 August '12
The second exhibition in the series highlighting KMSKA's collection of modern art focuses on Dutch art from the 19th and 20th centuries. Once again, the venue is Koningin Fabiolazaal (KFZ) in the centre of Antwerp.
The Royal Museum of Fine Arts Antwerp holds an extensive collection of Dutch art that includes not only work by Old Masters such as Frans Hals and Rembrandt, but also a rich and varied ensemble of over two hundred pieces from the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. From Appel to Willink
The exhibition The MODERNS. Art from the Netherlands – the second in a series highlighting KMSKA's collection of modern art – showcases fifty paintings, watercolours and drawings from the museum's holdings. Together, they tell a story of modern art in the Netherlands from 1850 to the present day. They also paint a picture of the artistic relationships that connect the Netherlands and Belgium. The exhibition further explains how KMSKA's collection of Dutch modern art came to be. Art from the Netherlands features work by, among others, Lawrence Alma-Tadema, George Hendrik Breitner, Vincent Van Gogh, Carel Willink and Karel Appel. Separately and collectively, the items displayed testify to the quality and richness of Dutch art of the 19th and 20th centuries.
