The exhibition Monet to Picasso presents the ALBERTINA Museum’s extensive holdings of classical modernist paintings, thereby offering an outstanding overview of the full range of “-isms” that 20th-century art history has to offer. The broad swath of art history covered by this permanent presentation ranges from impressionism and fauvism to German expressionism and Bauhaus and on to the Russian avant-garde and Picasso.


An Overview of Classical Modernism

This highlights tour takes a look at the 20th century’s most important art trends and most outstanding artists.

100 Years of Art History in Light of Selected Landscapes, Still Lifes, and Portraits

This program’s guided tour of the exhibition focuses is on one of the above-mentioned genres. In the process, the participating students discover the most important modernist trends’ characteristics for themselves by way of analysis and comparison. And thanks to this tour’s limitation to one type of pictorial theme, students’ examination of the works in question centers on teasing out individual stylistic trends and how these are situated in their art-historical surroundings.

The studio work adheres to the theme selected for the guided tour:

Landscape:In the half-hour workshop, students compose a landscape in one of the styles that they have just seen. In the 60-minute workshop, students produce two landscapes in differing styles.

Portrait: In the 30-minute workshop, students create a self-portrait monotype; in the 60-minute workshop, they reproduce this monotype and then elaborate upon their individual prints in different styles.

Still life: Students arrange their own still lifes from a range of objects. In the 30-minute workshop, they produce their works using pencil and paper. If an hour is available, they also experiment with further techniques.
