It is a fascinating and superbly illustrated look at one of the most turbulent decades in the history of art. The 1930s was a turbulent decade across the world with the rise of totalitarian governments, the outbreak of the Spanish Civil War, the start of World War II, and the constant migration of artists as part of evolving social, economic and political geographies that were marked by utopian dreams and devastating upheavals. This book approaches the 1930s and seeks to explore the micro histories that detail the movement of artists across borders, the potential transformation of artistic styles and the concurrent struggle to preserve old networks amidst the creation of new communities in often radically new contexts of artistic production. Touching on the works of Cartier-Bresson, Max Ernst, Miro, Picasso, and many more, as well as examining aspects of Surrealism, Abstraction, propaganda and photography, this is an insightful account of one of the most turbulent decades in the history of art.
