20th Century Masters at the Standard Bank Gallery (Johannesburg)

20th Century Masters: the human figure is the flagship exhibition of "The France-South Africa Seasons 2012 & 2013". Held at the Standard Bank gallery of Johannesburg from the 13th of July to the 15th of September 2012, the exhibition offers a fascinating survey of ways in which mainly French artists have depicted the human body over the last 100 years. It includes works by 19th-century greats Gustave Courbet, Jean-Francois Millet and Edouard Manet, paintings and drawings by artists associated with Impressionism - Berthe Morisot, Edgar Degas and August Renoir, works by pioneers of early modernism - Fernand Leger, Georges Braque, Pablo Picasso, Henri Matisse, Félix Vallotton, Victor Brauner and Wilfredo Lam, amongst others, as well as contemporary artists such as Annette Messager and Jan Fabre.
