The first decades of the twentieth century were defined by the vibrant development of visual and pictorial art.

Dadaism, an absurdist movement inspired directly by the events of the war, spread to a number of countries across Europe and established the careers of famous artists such as Marcel Duchamp, Francis Picabia, Hannah Höch and Kurt Schwitters.
