DEUTSCHLAND - STUTTGART - Turner, Monet, Twombly - Later Paintings


Until 28 May 2012, the Staatsgalerie Stuttgart will present approximately seventy late works – some quite large in scale – by William Turner, Claude Monet and Cy Twombly. The outstanding loans will serve to illuminate similarities and interrelationships between the works and exemplify their common characteristics

In his landscapes and seascapes, the English painter William Turner (1775–1851) developed an abstract pictorial language which was adopted by the Impressionists.

Claude Monet (1840–1926) translated the motifs of that harbinger of abstraction into series with differing light atmospheres. With Cy Twombly (1928–2011) the exhibition will extend the spectrum to encompass the present: an important of exponent of Abstract Expressionism, the American developed the poetic pictorial language further in his monumental paintings.
