The Pompidou Center’s National Museum of Modern Art has an unparalleled collection of 20th-century painting and sculpture. This tour takes advantage of the breadth of this stunning collection by studying the main avant-garde movements from 1900-1945: Fauvism, Cubism, Dada, and Surrealism. What were the central ideas behind each of these innovative approaches? We explore this question by focusing on the pioneers of each “ism”: Matisse, Picasso, Braque, Duchamp, Dalí, and Miró. Through close examination of selected masterpieces, we make sense of a diverse, seemingly chaotic, but always fascinating period in the history of modern art.

Your guide will pre-purchase your tickets, so you will avoid the ticket line. Please be prepared to pass through security screening, however, which is required for all visitors.
