Cézanne - Gauguin - Seurat - Van Gogh

Exhibition Link Nov 7 - Dec 7 1929, Museum of Modern Art, New York
Curator: Alfred H. Barr
The first exhibition of the Museum of Modern Art, comprising one hundred works by Cezanne, Gauguin, van Gogh and Seurat came to its close December 7th.
Over 47,000 people came to the exhibition, numbers increasing rather than diminishing as the four weeks passed. The last day 5,300 people crowded the Gallery.
These figures are even more surprising when taking into account the Wall Street Crash of 1929, also known as Black Tuesday, October 29. It was the most devastating stock market crash in the history of the United States, when taking into consideration the full extent and duration of its fallout. The crash signaled the beginning of the 10-year Great Depression that affected all Western industrialized countries.
