Exiled Artists in Wartime America
AboutMany prominent European artists - including Georg Grosz, Jacques Lipchitz and Marc Chagall - resettled (permanently or temporarily) in the USA following the Nazis' rise to power in Germany. It has long been acknowledged that these exiled artists permanently altered the course of American art. This talk focuses on the way in which curators, gallerists, and critics discussed and promoted the works of exiled artists against a backdrop of anti-immigrant sentiment and rising antisemitism.
