Art Meets History Timeline

Picasso to PollockĀ : Modern Masterworks from the Eskenazi Museum of Art presents a wide-ranging look at the artistic movements, impulses and reactions to a dramatically changing world.


Nearly every work in the exhibition was created as a response to the current events of the day. Life-altering experiences and cultural shifts pushed artists to seek answers to fundamental questions about the nature of art and the human experience.

The Art Meets History Timeline will give you a sense of the world in which these masterworks were made and just how rapidly it changed.

Welcome to the 20th century.
