The curators and designer say the 70 artists whose works are presented in Picasso to Kentridge, shared a 'search for innovative ways to express the century’s new, radical ideas”. 

Curators in Jerusalem have opened a six-month exhibition featuring 130 “outstanding examples” of 20th century artworks on paper held by Israel Museum, before it moves to Moscow’s Pushkin State Museum of Fine Arts next year.

The curators and designer say the 70 artists whose works are presented in Picasso to Kentridge: Modern Masterpieces on Paper shared a “search for innovative ways to express the century’s new and radical ideas”. 

The display showcases examples of Cubism, expressionism, Dada, surrealism, abstract expressionism, pop art and minimalism using different techniques.

The exhibition is supported by Genesis Philanthropy Group, whose CEO Marina Yudborovsky, said: “We see this partnership with the Israel Museum as a twofold endeavour. During the first stage, which just started, the Israeli public gets a unique chance to see works of renowned masters, some of whom represent the contribution of Russian Jewish artists to the global cannon. The next stage will enable art lovers in Russia to get acquainted with rarely exhibited examples of the Israel Museum’s collection, during planned exhibition at the Pushkin State Museum of fine Arts.”
