Expressionism/ Classical Modern Era/The Roaring Twenties
After the horror of the First World War only practicability is important.
20. Dancing in Baden-Baden
Max Beckmann, 1920; Munich
|21. Reclining Female Nude Amadeo Modigliani, 1917; Milan|
Finally - another work of the so called "Classical Modern Era", the "Reclining Female Nude" by Modigliani, 1917, a beautiful and ideal body for us.
In contemporary art the variety is vast an there seems to be no more universal ideal. Nevertheless the charming curves of Modigliani still delight our senses.
Now I am at the end of my fast gallop through art history and I hope you enjoyed it.
Thank you very much for your attention.
