New leipzig school

DEFINITION

A post World War II art movement in parts of Europe cut off from outside cultural influences by the Iron Curtain, it involved young artists dedicated to traditional studies, especially figurative education, that in the West had been overrun by abstraction. New Leipzig artists "flocked to the Leipzig Art Academy in East Germany" in order to get art education that allowed them to express themselves in a disciplined but personal way. Much of their painting and sculpture was hauntingly and surrealistically narrative, reflective of their war experiences.
