Summary
This provocative series on modern art picks up at the threshold of the 20th century. "The threshold of liberty: Surrealism was the last revolutionary art movement of the Twentieth Century, much like a religion. Dali, Mire, and Magritte were striving to liberate the unconscious mind through fantasy/reality. The view from the edge: Figurative Expressionism was ruined by the realities of the Nazi death camps whose horrors surpassed distortions of the human body an artist could imagine."--Container
