Spotlight: 20th-century art
The 20th century was a very rich period from an artistic point of view. From Expressionism and Cubism to Abstraction and Surrealism, there was something for everyone to discover. It is not easy to understand all the movements that took place in Europe back then! If you want to know more about the captivatingly colourful works of Sonia Delaunay or the characteristics of the Dada movement, not forgetting the Bauhaus or the sources of inspiration for Cubism, you've come to the right place. We'll tell you all about it in our new playlist!
