Movement Overview

Post-War and Contemporary art covers the period following World War II until the present day. Many themes are as relevant now as they were in 1945, such as identity, beauty, conflict and reflecting on the times. Some artists embraced the past, while others wanted to break away from it. Many of the most famous Post-War artists, like Cy Twombly and Francis Bacon, lived in America and Europe. But today’s sought-after Contemporary artists live and work around the world, from Yayoi Kusama and Yoshitomo Nara in Japan to Gerhard Richter in Germany.
