A series of monthly lectures focusing on the explosion of different styles of art in the 20th Century.

The series explains the basic principles behind Modern art as well as the historical development and demise of the whole movement, from 1870s till 1960s. The focus is on painting and main "isms" - Impressionism, Cubism, Expressionism, etc. Special attention will be paid to the works from the Gallery's own collection.
