Crystal Bridges Welcomes European Masters of Modernism

Picasso, Matisse and Degas are just a few of the big names hanging in the Bentonville museum's exhibition space.
Bentonville, AR - Modernist masterworks from Europe are on display at Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art.

Picasso, Matisse and Degas are just a few of the big names hanging in the Bentonville museum's exhibition space.

More than 60 paintings, sculptures and drawings are on loan from New York's Museum of Modern Art, the works are part of the private collection of William S. Paley, the founder of CBS.

"A man like Paley who was on the cutting edge of technology his whole life collected art that was also on the cutting edge of his time and that's why modernism caught his eye," says Niki Stewart, Director of Education and Exhibitions. "Landscapes and old masters are fine for most of us, but that wasn't what he was drawn to. This collection really shows his personal taste."

The exhibit also features American Artists inspired by the European masters. It opens Saturday, and runs through the first week of July.
