The Artistic Traveller: Modernism

n this Globe Guide we observe works by modernist pioneers, and the post-impressionist movement as well as visiting the latest cosmopolitan installations around the world.

Beginning with French artists Adela Ucar learns about the paintings of Edouard Manet in Paris’ Musee d’Orsay while Christina Chang travels to Arles in southern France, to a former home of Vincent Van Gogh, the world’s most famous post impressionist.

In Spain, Megan McCormick heads the artistic hub of Barcelona, and learns about influential modernists Pablo Picasso and Joan Miro and the surrealist, Salvador Dali.

We end our modernist showcase in up and coming art hot spots around the globe, such as Beijing and Indonesia’s capital Jakarta. Here Bobby Chinn meets with cutting edge comic political artist Heri Duo who is at the forefront of a movement known as ‘New Internationalism’.
