about

This second volume in the Art of the Twentieth Century series analyzes and presents the diverse world of artistic production between the two world wars, beginning with the environment that took shape in the immediate wake of World War I. The Artistic Culture Between the Wars is an interdisciplinary survey of this period’s changing artistic climate that included the re-emergence of a figurative approach (the New Objectivity), and the evolution of an avant-garde that is now historicized by its second-generation artists. Also considered are phenomena such as Surrealism, the change in taste from Art Deco to Novecentismo, and the expression of the totalitarian regimes during the outbreak of World War II. The book’s chronological boundaries stretch from the birth of the Dada in Germany to the birth of Abstract Expressionism (1943-1945).

Valerio Terraroli is professor of History of Contemporary Art and History of Modern Decorative Arts at the University of Turin. He is the author of numerous essays and volumes including the Skira Dictionary of Modern and Decorative Arts (2001) .
