Color, soup cans, dreams and drips come alive in the DAM's Modern Masters 

The dream time

Albright-Knox offered these works up for travel, which Sobel then coordinated into a semi-chronological order. It begins about where the DAM's last show, Passport to Paris left off, with a Camille Pissarro and post-Impressionists like Van Gogh and Rousseau. From there it moves to the next generation of European artists who explored Cubism, like Gris and Braque. That's followed by the Surrealists, the Abstract-Expressionists from the U.S., and then ends with Minimalism and Pop Art.

In addition to the artwork, Modern Masters includes photographs of the creators themselves — after all, these are 20th-century people. Some are still alive, which is kind of hard to wrap your head around, given the way their names have gone household. There's one photo of Kahlo painting "The Wounded Table," a would-be masterpiece that tragically disappeared. There's another of Claes Oldenburg hauling a giant (toothpaste?) tube down the street, its size absurd.
