The interplay between figuration and abstraction is a fascinating subject in modern art. The new presentation of the collection illustrates this by juxtaposing important paintings and sculptures from impressionism, classical modernism, and contemporary art. A walk through the history of art, the display includes many “passages” between landscapes and figures, which illustrate how figurative and abstract elements combine or collide.
