The Irish Museum of Modern Art (IMMA) explores the early decades of Cubism with an exhibition featuring the work of leading Irish exponents of the genre, Evie Hone, Mainie Jellett, May Guinness, Mary Swanzy and Norah McGuinness, as well as European greats such as Pablo Picasso, Albert Gleizes, André Lhote and Georges Braque.
The show has a particular focus on the extent to which Irish cubists learnt from, and contributed to, modernism in continental Europe where many of them worked in the 1920s and 1930s.
The exhibition examines the early years of the Cubist movement up to the end of world war two, and looks at the work of a number of pioneering Irish artists who travelled to France and elsewhere in mainland Europe to pursue their careers in modern art.
