The exhibit features four painters with four vastly different styles which, despite representing disparate time periods, somehow still hang well together. Iconography situates the work’s relation to European religious painting. Impressionism is rooted in the artistic push-back against the painting of the dark, broodish Barbizon School of painting. The abstract painting of the late 20th century divorced the non-figurative out of the the yolk of figurative painting, as anticipated by Turner in his abstracted sunset series. Pop art introduced and accentuated the introduction of cultural and consumeristic into the realm of high art. Each of these genres of painting has remained actively practiced through time. Here is a brief look at the work exhibited in this show.

Cette expo de peinture propose quatre peintres qui se trouvent à pratiquer des genres de peinture vastement différents, mais qui se tiennent quand-même bien ensemble.
