Great War - Great Art?
Monday, November 11
Can you mention art and World War I in the same sentence? The Belle Époque came to an end, and Europe became a cemetery from France to Russia. Georges Braque, Fernand Léger and Stanley Spencer fought. Max Beckmann claims to have lost his mind there. Guillaume Apollinaire died of his wounds. Umberto Boccioni and Egon Schiele died in uniform. The Jazz Age, once the shooting stopped, took Paris by storm, but most of Europe remained in the shadows for years. Our panel in this centenary year will discuss the art in and after World War I that ranged from DaDa to the grotesquery of Georg Grosz.
