The great masters of the Modern Movement (which in fact began its life over a century ago, with the sensational appearance of the Fauves in the Paris Salon d'Automne in 1905) retain their allure for a variety of reasons. One of the most important is that they seem to deserve the adjective 'modern' in two different senses. They are modernist in a generically historical sense yet still seem very much of our own later time. Now, when be look back, often for nearly a century, we are no longer alienated. What astonishes us is how alive these paintings and drawings - sculptures too - still remain, despite the passage of time. They teach us how to look, which is something that later avant-garde art movements have seemingly forgotten how to do. By this act of looking, we connect more fully with the world around us, and enhance our own lives.
