Pioneers and Exiles: German Expressionism at the Indiana University Art Museum
Expressionism is considered one of the most important forms of modern German art, with major centers in Munich, Berlin, and Dresden. This exhibition, which features forty-eight works from the permanent collection of the IU Art Museum, surveys the artists, subjects, and techniques of Expressionism, while also considering the development of the museum’s rich collection within a broader historical context. How German art dealers, collectors, and artists—exiles from Nazi Germany—impacted the development of the museum’s collection is explored as well. Accompanied by a fully illustrated color catalogue.
