European Art Between the Wars: 1918-1940
In the years between the two world wars, widely divergent styles developed in European art. Some artists, notably Picasso and Matisse, turned for a time to classicism, while others, such as Mondrian and Kandinsky, pursued pure abstraction. Surrealists Ernst, Miró, and Dalí—among others—drew imagery from dreams and the subconscious. Architecture and design flourished, with the emergence of the Bauhaus in Germany, art deco in France, and the spare international styles that defined modern architecture around the world. Lectures and sessions take place at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Museum of Modern Art, and the Guggenheim Museum.
