The Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao opened an interesting exhibition "Paris, end of the century". The exhibition features 125 works of the last decade of the 19th century. The organizers considered it necessary to show those tough times with pictures of Neo-Immpressionists, Symbolists and the "Nabi". The exhibition includes works by Pierre Bonnard, Camille Pissarro, Paul Signac, Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec and others.
Thanks to a very thoughtful and painstaking work of the curators of the exhibition the viewer will be able to dive deeply into a period of social upheaval and scientific discovery, riotous decadence and creativity. It is equally important that the show actually reveals the main origins of the famous "Paris school" that emerged in the early twentieth century and influenced the whole world of fine art.
In addition, the uniqueness of the exhibition is that most of the displayed exhibits are owned by private collectors and have rarely been exhibited to the public. Morover, it is for the first time that they are shown simultaneously all together. Exhibition curator Vivien Greene with undisguised pleasure has noticed, that the Museum had managed to gather the cream of painting of the late XIX century.
