Summary:
"Using the Venice Biennale as a case study, this book challenges the idea that there was an American cultural conquest in the 1950s through the fine arts, arguing instead that Western Europe retained a strong sense of world cultural leadership in the immediate post-war years. Scholarly but accessible, this book will appeal to all those with an interest in international cultural relations during the Cold War."--book  Read more...
