Featuring more than 50 paintings by iconic artists including Edgar Degas, Vincent van Gogh, Edouard Manet, Claude Monet, Pablo Picasso, and Paul Cézanne from the world-renowned Phillips Collection, A Modern Vision: European Masterworks from The Phillips Collection brings artists famous for their depictions of light, color, and modern life to the North Carolina Museum of Art. Opening alongside a historic reinstallation of the NCMA’s collection, A Modern Vision showcases extraordinary paintings by titans of impressionism, postimpressionism, expressionism, and cubism, carefully collected by founder Duncan Phillips.

The Phillips Collection was America’s first museum of modern art, opening its doors in Washington, DC, in 1921 and installing works by different artists together to connect their art across time and place. A Modern Vision expresses Phillips’s belief that his museum gathered “congenial spirits among artists from different parts of the world and from different periods of time” to demonstrate “that art is a universal language.”
