Van Gogh, Picasso, Kahlo, Rousseau, Modligliani, Dali, Motherwell, Pollock, Lichtenstein, Rothko: Works by these and other masters in the collection of the Albright-Knox Museum in Buffalo, N.Y., opens Saturday at Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art as part of a national tour. "Van Gogh to Rothko: Modern Masterworks from the Albright-Knox Art Gallery" includes more than 70 masterworks, including paintings and sculpture. From CBM:

Van Gogh to Rothko traces the story of avant-garde art from late 19th-century Modernism through Abstract Expressionism and Pop Art in the late 1950s and early 60s. Beginning with works from the late 1800s, the exhibition includes stellar examples of Post-Impressionism by Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, Vincent van Gogh, and Paul Gauguin, which inspired artists on both sides of the Atlantic, as can be seen in later works throughout the exhibition. Van Gogh to Rothko also considers ideas that contributed to the development of art movements such as Cubism, Surrealism, Pop Art, and Minimalism. The largest grouping in the exhibition features approximately 20 mid-century American artists, many of whom identified as Abstract Expressionists, including Rothko, Willem de Kooning, and Robert Motherwell.

The exhibition will run through June 1. The Times will again offer the Art Bus to the exhibition, on May 2 with yours truly. Details to come.
