A cautious achievement

The Alte Nationalgalerie can expect major hype for its summer exhibition. The inclusion of superstar artists (Monet, Degas and Van Gogh to name a few) means that Impressionism – Expressionism: Art at a Turning Point is certain to draw visitors. But the curators believe that what they are doing is more groundbreaking than a straightforward crowd-pleaser. The exhibition aims to compare the movements, showing how they shed light on each other when presented side-by-side.
