Les Arts à Paris après la Libération
Temps et TemporalitésPassages online
The volume sheds new light on the Parisian art world after the Second World War, its protagonists, inter(national) dimensions and aesthetic challenges. It assembles a selection of contributions of the annual congress 2014/15 held at the German Center for Art History Paris as well as further results of research undertaken during that same year. Besides questions of historiography the publication focuses on case studies in which renowned artists like Giacometti, Picasso and Brassaï are analized. Furthermore, new protagonists, institutions and media are introduced and innovative perspectives developed. The volume thus makes a valuable contribution to the reevaluation of art of the postwar period.
