El Paso Museum of Art Opens Free Guggenheim Collection Exhibition This Weekend
Starting this weekend the El Paso Museum of Art opens a free exhibition by world-famous artists from the Guggenheim collection.
Today the El Paso Museum of Art opens the Robert Delaunay and Albert Gleizes: The School of Paris exhibition to the public. This is the third installment of the EPMA’s Modern Masters Series: Highlights from the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum.
The School of Paris, features bold color, expressive geometry, and explosive movement in two important oil on canvas works by the French modernists Robert Delaunay and Albert Gleizes. Both artists are affiliated with the so-called School of Paris, a phrase applied to both the French and non-French modernists that congregated in the international art center of Paris during the first half of the 20th century. Delaunay and Gleizes make a perfect pairing who, along with Georges Braque, who invented Cubism.
Works in this exhibition have never been on display in El Paso before. The Modern Masters Series brings major expressions of early twentieth century European modernist painting from the Guggenheim’s stellar collection of art to the city. The exhibition is part of the City of El Paso’s commitment to improving the community’s quality of life by creating exceptional recreational, cultural, and educational opportunities.
The exhibit, which is organized by the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum Foundation, runs through September 25, 2015, and will be on display in the Peter and Margaret de Wetter Gallery.
