Chaos and Classicism: Art in France, Italy, and Germany, 1918-1936

Text by Kenneth E. Silver, Emily Braun, James Herbert, Jeanne Nugent, Helen Hsu.

Image is courtesy Comité Jean Cocteau, © 2010 Artists Rights Society (ARS), New York/ADAGP, Paris.Chaos and Classicism: Art in France, Italy, and Germany, 1918-1936 explores the classicizing aesthetic that followed the immense destruction of World War I. Accompanying the Guggenheim's exhibition of the same name, it examines the interwar period in its key artistic manifestations and their interpretations of classical values and aesthetics: the poetic dream of antiquity in the Parisian avant garde of Fernand Léger and Pablo Picasso; the politicized revival of the Roman Empire under Benito Mussolini by artists such as Giorgio de Chirico and Mario Sironi; and the austere functionalist utopianism of the Bauhaus, as well as, more chillingly, the pseudo-biological classicism, or Aryanism, of nascent Nazi society. This presentation of the seismic transformations in interbellum French, Italian and German culture encompasses painting, sculpture, photography, architecture, film, fashion and the decorative arts. Among the other artists surveyed here are Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, André Derain, Gino Severini, Jean Cocteau, Le Corbusier, Amédée Ozenfant, Madeleine Vionnet, Émile-Jacques Ruhlmann, Carlo Carrà, Giorgio Morandi, Massimo Campigli, Achille Funi, Ubaldo Oppi, Felice Casorati, Giuseppe Terragni, Gio Ponti, Arturo Martini, Georg Kolbe, Oskar Schlemmer, Otto Dix, Georg Scholz, Georg Schrimpf, Wilhelm Schnarrenberger and August Sander.

FROM THE BOOK
"Germany's return to order after World War I followed a different trajectory than that of France, Italy or Spain, where the classical tradition might legitimately be seen as indigenous. In order to compete with the Mediterranean model, a number of influential German cultural spokesmen took it upon themselves to invent a Nordic racial type derived from 'blood and soil' ideology. The link between classical Greece and modern Germany was rationalized, if illogically, through a genealogy of disparate lands and peoples throughout history that became popular in the 1920s."

Excerpt is from Jeanne Anne Nugent's essay, "Germany's Classical Turn From the Great Disorder to a Kingdom of the Dead," reproduced from Chaos and Classicism: Art in France, Italy and Germany, 1918-1936.
