This week on Utah NOW, the pictures that changed the world of art forever.
We're profiling the blockbuster exhibition that has opened at the Utah Museum of Fine Arts. It's a collection of masterworks from names like Picasso, Van Gogh and Monet. We'll talk about the art, about the movement it began and the story of its creation.
It wouldn't be right to say there was one moment or even one painting that changed the course of art. It doesn't really work that way. However, visit the exhibition that has just opened at the Utah Museum of Fine Arts, and you'll be able to detect the beginnings of a movement. They were artists who were breaking away from the old guard and creating a new visual language.
The exhibition from the Cleveland Museum of Art is perhaps the most important array of fine art ever to come to Utah. There are 74 paintings and sculptures in all and each one of them are undisputed masterworks from artists like Picasso, Rodin, Van Gogh and Renoir.
Join Utah NOW as we take a closer look at some of the art, its creators and the movement that would change the concept of art forever.
