A new generation of radical art emerged, that included Constructivism in Britain, raw forms of expressionist art ('Art Brut') in post-occupied France and the exciting developments of Abstract Expressionism in the US. This course begins in 1945 amid the Cold War era when many artists challenged the style and aims of pre-War art styles and schools.
