Art is profoundly influenced by historical events. In the 1920s Picasso radically changed his style of painting from Cubism to a form of art recalling ancient cultures.  Simultaneously artists throughout Europe rejected popular avant-garde movements to conform to a style of 'neutrality'. What were the causes for this shift in the visual arts that continued through the 1940s?  Examine the masterworks from France, Italy and Germany, and discover how artists were challenged to reflect the ever present shifts in cultural and political history.  Enhance your art appreciation by recognizing the influences and motivation behind these celebrated masterworks.
