Glancing at the Century

28.06 - 20.09.1998

Without claiming to be a retrospective, the exhibition Glancing at the Century touched on important aspects of 20th century art by presenting artists from various periods and currents of the past hundred years. The aim was to give an idea, even though schematic, of modern and contemporary artistic creation, but also to offer a fertile stimulus both to the exhibition visitors and to the readers of the catalogue (a Greek and an English edition), which accompanied the exhibition.

The exhibition presented 95 works (oil paintings, drawings, watercolors, engravings and sculptures), belonging to the Foundation's Collection, as well as private collections.

A total of 42 artists were exhibited: Edgar Degas (1834-1917), Auguste Rodin (1840-1917), Jean-Louis Forain (1852-1931), Wassily Kandinsky (1866-1944), Édouard Vuillard (1868-1940), Henri Matisse (1869-1954), Maurice de Vlaminck (1876-1958), Kees van Dongen (1877-1968), André Derain (1880-1954), Pablo Picasso (1881-1973), Georges Braque (1882-1963), Amedeo Modigliani (1884-1920), Jean Arp (1886-1966), Léonard-Tsuguharu Foujita (1886-1968), Marc Chagall (1887-1985), Giorgio de Chirico (1888-1978), Joan Miró (1893-1983), Ben Nicholson (1894-1982), Jean Fautrier (1898-1964), Henri Michaux (1899-1984), Jean Dubuffet (1901-1985), Alberto Giacometti (1901-1966), Victor Brauner (1903-1966), Barbara Hepworth (1903-1975), Jean Hélion (1904-1987), Germaine Richier (1902-1959), Balthus (1908-2001), Karel Appel (1921-2006), César (1921-1998), Roy Lichtenstein (1923-1997), Robert Rauschenberg (1925-2008), Jean Tinguely (1925-1991) & Nikki de Saint Phalle (1930-2002), Hundertwasser (1928-2000), Andy Warhol (1928-1987), Fernando Botero (1932- ), Christo (1935- ), A.
