- Journeys through the Twentieth Century
This guided tour navigates a clear and emotionally-engaging course through the museum’s masterpieces of the twentieth-century art. The comparisons and contrasts which highlight the different tendencies and trends during that century also suggest various directions for further reflection. Organisation on the basis of chronology and theme makes it possible to grasp how the “making of art” changed as the century progressed, with works of the highest quality serving to illustrate a constant process of experimentation and the key phases in the evolution of painting and sculpture. At the same time, this approach is multidisciplinary in inspiration, enabling the students to see changes in art in relation to the radical – perhaps dramatic – transformations that were taking place in the world at the time.
