Tours at Centre Pompidou
Masterpieces of Modern Art
2-hour tour. 4 person maximum.
The Pompidou Center's National Museum of Modern Art has an unparalleled collection of 20th-century European painting and sculpture. This tour takes advantage of the breadth and depth of this stunning collection by studying the principle avant-garde movements from 1900-1945: fauvism, cubism, dada, and surrealism. What were the central ideas behind each of these innovative approaches to art making? We answer this question by focusing on the pioneers of each "ism": Matisse, Picasso, Braque, Duchamp, Dalí, and Miró. Through close examination of selected masterpieces, we make sense of a diverse, seemingly chaotic, but always fascinating period in the history of art.
