Discover the Parisian artistic avantgarde as you've never seen it before...
The Petit Palais is currently hosting an exhibition that sheds light on the significant changes that took place in the early 20th century and how they influenced artists. If you're interested in learning about the impact of Fauvism, Cubism, Art Deco, and other art movements, this playlist is the perfect place for you.

African sculptures, Oceanic ritual masks, Japanese woodblock prints…Today, you can turn to Google to see thousands of pieces of artwork from around the world. However, in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, non-Western art just started to make its way to Europe. Works from abroad fascinated European artists with their beautiful aesthetics, subtle color palettes, unique perspectives, and non-traditional subject matters. Their influence was so significant that one could feasibly argue that 20th-century Modernism would not exist without them. In this video, let’s find out how Non-Western art manifested itself in the works of avant-garde European artists.
