The end of the 19th century brought a new art, differing from that which had dominated since the Renaissance. That new art, represented by Picasso in France, and later by Pollock in the United States, eventually influenced the art of the world. This course examines the rise and influence of this new art by analyzing examples primarily from Europe and America, but also from other parts of the world.
