East Building Information Desk

From Matisse to Mondrian, from Picasso to Pollock, this tour will focus on the first half of the twentieth century when artists challenged the conventions of traditional art. We will explore the intersections of new ideas, materials, and subject matter as artists moved towards abstraction and grappled with modernism.
