Art In Europe. Facing the future. 1945-1968

Серия: "-"

The Second World War shattered the art world. Art in Europe 1945-1968: Facing the Future shows how artists such as Henri Matisse, Pablo Picasso, Ossip Zadkine, Henry Moore, Renato Guttuso, Fernand L&# 233;ger, Yves Klein, Gerhard Richter and Lucian Freud worked through the trauma of 1940-1945 and the Cold War, and started to explore new directions in art. This reference work includes some 400 works by 150 artists, bringing together for the first time post-war art from both Western and Eastern Europe. Experts reveal the various evolutions and movements within this period, from the mourning of the first post-war years to British Pop Art, and political art leading up to the revolutions of the late 1960s.
