In celebration of its 30th anniversary today July 14, the Masterworks Museum of Bermuda Art is staging The NY Centenary exhibit: an examination of the impact the island has played on several modernist and cubist artists.  American Modernists Charles Demuth and Marsden Hartley and French cubist artist Albert Gleizes, considered to be one of the founding members of Cubism, all visited the island 100 years ago and were inspired by the characteristic geometric shapes of the island's architecture, as well as its people and landscape. The excursion proved to be a fruitful one and resulted in the creation of several important pieces of art including Hartley’s 'Movement' (pictured above) and Gleizes’ 'La Maison du Gouverneur'.
