Class Notes (Wk 6)

"Degenerate Art"

Hilter called modern artists degenerates, and vowed to eliminate them.
claustrophobic effect
graffiti over, behind around, criticizing the art
Adolf Hitler was rejected and not recognized as an artist
wanted to represent the world "as it really is"
modern art painted what was underneath what we see in the world
expressionists wanted to go beyond impressionism
inner world, psychological landscapes
