The Montreal Museum of Fine Arts has a number of exhibitions which prove to be interesting coming up over the Fall. Here are two of them. From Van Gogh to Kandinsky: From Impressionism to Expressionism, 1900-1914, promises to be a landmark exhibition. To begin with there is the sheer size of it all. There are 90 paintings and 45 works on paper backed up by 200 pieces of documentary evidence, photographs, stereographic images and magazines that focus on Paris.
The exhibition is made up of work by Post-Impressionist, Fauvist and Cubist paintings by more than 40 artists including Cézanne, Van Gogh, Gauguin, Henri Matisse, Robert Delaunay and Paul Signac that the Expressionists, Wassily Kandinsky, Kirchner, Munter and Franz Marc, for example were able to see in German exhibitions and on their travels in Paris For the first time in a major museum exhibition, Expressionism, which is usually regarded as a German art movement, is presented as an international movement in which artists responded with various different approaches to the work done by the likes of Cézanne, Van Gogh and Gauguin.
From November 5, 2014 to March 15, 2015 the MMFA will be showing Warhol Mania , which consists of some 50 advertising posters and almost a thousand magazine illustrations.
