Modern Masters in Print: Matisse, Picasso, Dalí and Warhol at Wandsworth Museum
Andy Warhol, Marilyn.
LONDON.- For six weeks only, Wandsworth Museum explores the printed work of four of the 20th century’s greatest artists: Henri Matisse, Pablo Picasso, Salvador Dalí and Andy Warhol.

Visitors will be able to view over fifty stunning artworks drawn from the V&A Museum’s collections, including Picasso's Le Repas Frugal, Dali’s posters for the French National Railways and three versions of Warhol's Pop Art Marilyn, in this touring exhibition's only London stop.

Each artist used the print in his own way. For Matisse and Picasso, printmaking was one of the many artistic media they employed. They used it to explore themes and motifs from other areas of their work. For Dalí, printmaking was an exercise in experimentation, and through it he developed many imaginative new processes. Warhol’s prints were his primary means of expression and central to his body of work. His screen-prints based on mass-produced images challenged the concept of the ‘original’ print.

Together these artists spanned a 75-year period that saw the birth of the modern age. They covered a wide range of techniques, and their work represents one of the most creative and diverse periods of printmaking in the history of western art.

Exhibition organised by the Victoria and Albert Museum, London.

Neil Couzens, Director of Wandsworth Museum, said: ‘We are delighted to be able to bring works by four of the greatest artists of the modern era to Wandsworth Museum, and would like to thank the V&A for their help in facilitating this exhibition.’

Wandsworth Museum opened in September 2010 and tells the fascinating story of the London Borough of Wandsworth and its ‘villages’: Balham, Battersea, Earlsfield, Furzedown, Nine Elms, Putney, Roehampton, Southfields, Tooting & Wandsworth.
