The Cantor Arts Center's collection of art created in the first half of the twentieth century explores how artists broke radically with the past by experimenting with new and modern styles. Working in Europe and the United States, these artists pushed the boundaries of traditional art-making by collapsing pictorial space and embracing abstract representations of the body. The works on view in this gallery—all examples of new approaches to visualizing modernity—helped set the stage for much of the art produced today.
