A transatlantic avant-garde : American artists in Paris, 1918-1939

Levy, Sophie, ed.


ATRASATLANTIC A VANT-GARDE: **Cultural links have long been among the important ties binding the United States and France. Indeed, French and American artistas have influenced each other to such an extent that it is impossible today to imagine the art of one country without the influence of the other. The interwar period was one of the most fruitful times for artistic exchange, as Ameicans in Paris absorbed trends in the French avant-garde and reshaped them through their own artistic lenses. American artists, in turn, introduced new elements of modernism to their Parisian counterparts, contributing to a dynamic process of artistic creativity and innovation. This outstanding exhibition is a wonderful opportunity for visitors to the Musée d´Art Américan Giverny to see some of the masterpieces of the interwar period, including works by Alexander Calder, Stuart Davis, Charles Demuth, Lee Miller, and Man Ray. The exhibition will subsequently travel to the United States, underscoring the cross-cultural character of this American art inspired by France**, The Honorable Howard H.
