Ambitious title for the exhibition. Many of my favorite works from the museum are present but there were also a few disappointing surprises.

From the musum site:
"For the first time in its history, the Gemeentemuseum presents a vast display of modern and contemporary art filling two whole floors of its main building. The new exhibition, entitled XXth Century, uses both major historical events like the Wall Street Crash and the Russian revolution and lesser ones like the arrival of the steam railway on Walcheren to suggest the background against which untiring artistic experimentation constantly transformed the face of Western art."
