The Museum of Modern Art in New York City recently presented an in-depth look into the work of René Magritte, the Belgian surrealist who produced some of the 20th century’s most innovative images by challenging ordinary and rational conventions. The touring exhibition is the first to focus exclusively on his breakthrough years leading up to WW II.
This exhibit of textiles-in-transition was recently on display in Denver, Colorado. During World War II, textiles reflected the austerity of the time with quiet and simple designs. But after the war, a sense of hope and rebuilding infused the arts reflecting a dramatic shift in style.
