POST-WAR (1945-1975)

From the concentration of radical thought in Paris, after the second World War, a new generation of artists emerged, known as the Jeune École de Paris. These artists came from all over Europe and the vibrant and provocative nature of their work reflected the turmoil of civilisation and sought a renewal of language and aesthetics that would provide expression and orientation to the loss of faith in traditional values within post-war society. It is these exceptional circumstances which produced the wonderfully rich diversity of powerful and challenging styles that characterises this remarkable era.
