After World War I, many artists returned to a more traditional form of painting, a period dubbed “the return to order.” Focusing on works by Pablo Picasso, Fernand Léger, Giorgio de Chirico, Amedeo Modigliani, and Otto Dix, explore the ways in which artists negotiated modernity and classicism against the backdrop of a chaotic postwar Europe.

Gallery Sessions, impromptu interactions facilitated by Museum educators that explore the creative process, art history, and the experience of art, take place daily in select galleries. Groups meet in the galleries noted on the schedule. Gallery Sessions are free with Museum admission. No registration is required.

FM headsets for sound amplification are available for all talks.
