In the short period between 1885 and the start of the First World War, a modern Renaissance took place in the painting of the Low Countries. Color is liberated from the shackles of visible reality. Grass can suddenly be a cool blue, a face is bright purple and trees turn red. Color has acquired its own meaning. It is one of the most important moments in modern art history. The inspiration comes from the French (neo)impressionists, but the artists in the Low Countries give it their own interpretation. The Gemeentemuseum shows the interaction between the two countries with clear differences as well as similarities. This unique exhibition is made possible in part by the renovation of the Royal Museum of Fine Arts in Antwerp (KMSKA), so that the masterpieces from the collection can now travel. From the French godfathers of color such as Claude Monet, Paul Signac, Henri Matisse and Paul Cézanne to the masters of the Low Countries such as Leo Gestel, Jan Toorop, Piet Mondriaan, James Ensor, Jan Sluijters, Henry Van de Velde and Rik Wouters: they all come together and the result is a real feast for the eyes.
