Magnificent work

From the depiction of middle-class family life that Adriano Cecioni (1838-86) hinted at in his work to a sunny view of the Place Saint-Michel public square in Paris painted by Jean-Francois Raffaelli (1850-1924) to demonstrate his renewed interest in the city's landscapes; from a portrait made by Amedeo Modigliani (1884-1920) of his agent's wife that represents a pinnacle of the artist's short-lived life to an etching of the Minotaur by Pablo Picasso (1881-1973), commissioned by the leading art dealer Ambroise Vollard, representations of modernism evolved over a span of 150 years. The styles these figures heralded and their spirit to reform and embrace changes, covering the period from the mid-19th century to the 1970s, are given a vivid portrayal at Magnificence, an exhibition at the Sky Museum in Shenzhen, Guangdong province, through June 25. The show features luminaries of modern art, including Vincent van Gogh (1853-90), Henri Matisse (1869-1954) and Wassily Kandinsky (1866-1944), to name a few. The works are from the collection of the National Gallery of Modern and Contemporary Art in Rome.

10 am-8 pm, Tuesday to Thursday, Sunday; 10 am-9 pm, Friday and Saturday. Shenzhen Media Group Tower, Futian district, Shenzhen, Guangdong province.
