Order Now


 As modern art became popular in Europe and gave people fresh and brand new thoughts, modern artists used their unique styles to expressed emotion, created new forms and exposed the ugly aspect and the degeneration of human society after the World War I. However, with the rise of the Nazis and the influence of nationalism, the suppression of entertainment and modern art was spread at a very high speed. The Nazis even organized an art show called “Degenerate Art” Exhibition, meant to make fun of modern art and vilify it (Barkan 117).
