A Return to Order: Caroline Bacon

"In the aftermath of the First World War a European art movement arose that was characterized by a return to more traditional approaches to art, which rejected the avant-garde for more reassuring traditional responses. Many artists who had previously been exponents of avant-garde, such as Picasso and Braque, turned away from their previous ideas. We will explore this new form of Classicism in a tumultuous age. "
