Full Description

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 Léger, 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.
