Alongside this, further famous artists from the impressionist and post-impressionist movements, Paul Gauguin, Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, Edouard Manet, Edgar Degas and Amedeo Modigliani sculptures and paintings will also be on display ensuring a fully versed presentation of artistic talent from this period. This will be the first time this individual and comprehensive collection will be exhibited in Europe, formed shortly after World War Two by American benefactors of art, Henry and Rose Pearlman. It's interesting to note that this collection was chosen to the taste of the late Henry Pearlman and adds a personal level to the depth of the curation.
