This week’s Modern Art Notes Podcast leads off with Los Angeles County Museum of Art curator Timothy O. Benson.

Benson is the curator of "Expressionism in Germany and France: From Van Gogh to Kandinsky." The show reveals how expressionism, typically considered a German movement, had its roots in late 19th-century French art and then presents how central European artists discovered, learned from and expanded upon developments in France. 

It’s on view through September 14. The exhibition’s catalogue, published by Prestel, is terrific. Amazon offers it for $50.

The artwork at the top of this post is the most important painting of the 20th century: Henri Matisse’s Blue Nude, Memory of Biskra (1907). It isn’t in Benson’s show, but it’s influence is evident and often overt. Included here are some of the many ways artists engaged with Blue Nude. All are in “Expressionism in Germany in France.” From top-to-bottom:

Ernst Ludwig Kirchner, Dodo Playing with Her Fingers (1909). Collection of the Milwaukee Art Museum;

Erich Heckel, Scene in the Woods (1910), Plate 2 of the portfolio “Die Brucke VI (1911), Collection of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art;

Ernst Ludwig Kirchner, Reclining Nude in Front of Mirror (1909-10). Collection of Brucke Museum; and

Max Pechstein, Dancers and Bathers at a Forest Pond, 1912. Collection of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art.

Gaza Artist Turns Israeli Air Strike Smoke into Powerful Sketches

As the world looks on with horror at the growing civilian toll in Gaza, and Hamas and Israel consider the terms of a U.S.-proposed ceasefire, one young Palestinian architect is responding to the crisis through art. Gaza-based Tawfik Gebreel aims to send a message, in the “universal humanitarian language understood by all peoples of the world.” He is using photos of the smoke thrown up by rocket strikes and reworking the images with symbols of hope and unity.
