ALBERTINA -- To April 6: "Monet bis Picasso: Die Sammlung Batliner." There is no underlying concept here, just curatorial pride at presenting, in a well-documented chronological display, works by some of the best-known artists of the early 20th century. The Batliner private collection started with classic Modern art and expanded to include contemporary art. Its 500 works have been transferred to the Albertina on permanent loan and about half are on display: Monet, Degas, Czanne, Matisse and Picasso launch the exhibition that progresses to the Surrealists and the Russian avant-garde and concludes with Karel Appel, Rothko and Barnett Newman. --
