1945 - Art
How did artists react to the end of the war in 1945? Many modern artists had been censored and regarded as degenerate during the Nazi period and those that had remained tried to deal with the catastrophe in their own ways. Many artists depicted daily life in postwar Germany, the daily struggle to survive in the face of huge shortages, the ruined citiscapes and the beginnings of a renewal.
