presentation…then sit back and watch Art Under Siege…Paris.
After his rise to power in 1933, Hitler began to cleanse the culture of what he considered degeneracy. Not only did he persecute specific groups of people, but he also tried to control all aspects of culture. In art, Hitler denounced modern art and its practitioners as “incompetents, cheats and madmen”. After the fall of Paris to the Nazis in June 1940, Hitler’s policies began to affect the Paris art world.
In this lecture, ArtScapades will look at artists who were working in or around Paris during World War II. Some stayed, some fled, and some went in to hiding; but none were untouched. Henri Matisse, Pablo Picasso, Vasily Kandinsky and Marc Chagall will be discussed.
