Geoff Krawczyk’s Art Survey course, Art Since 1945.
Europe to New York: 1913-1939
The second slide lecture discusses the effects and aftermath of WWI on the art of Europe. It covers the reaction to the wars in Berlin and Paris, through the Dadaists and the Surrealists. Also covered is the political and social situation in art in 1930s America. We can see how the art center of the world begins to shift from Paris to New York as WWII looms.
