> DESCRIPTION

In 1937, Adolf Hitler and his Nazi regime viewed modernist artists as insane and threatening to their ideals. They presented the Entartete Kunst (Degenerate Art) exhibition in Munich, hoping to turn public opinion against all modern art. Explore works by several of these "degenerate" artists as we mark the 75th anniversary of the exhibition's opening. Nine works on display.
