'The Museum of the King: French Modern Art & Surrealism from the Collection of the Yokohama Museum of Art'


June 23-Sept. 24

On loan from the Yokohama Museum of Art, which is renowned for its extensive collection of international modern art, this selection of works explores works created in France, with a focus on surrealist masters.

The title of the exhibition takes its name, “The King’s Museum,” from a painting by Rene Magritte (1898-1967), which is being displayed with other highlights by Salvador Dali (1904-1989), Paul Delvaux (1897-1994) and Max Ernst (1891-1976). The progression of surrealism in photography is also represented through the works of Nadar (1820-1910), Jacques Henri Lartigue (1894-1986) and Andre Kertesz (1894-1985).
