Classical modernism meets Africa and Oceania: The 2009 Visual Encounters exhibition presented a superb selection of non-Western art in the company of masterpieces of classical modernism. Paintings and sculptures by Monet, van Gogh, Picasso, Mondrian, Matisse and other notable artists were juxtaposed with artworks from Africa and Oceania, bringing into focus the unmistakable contribution of art and culture from outside Europe to the history of world art.

The catalogue documents and discusses connections and contradictions between the exhibits and looks at the works from an art-historical perspective. Essays by distinguished experts provide insights into this complex thematic field.
