- In July, 1937, the Nazis put on an exhibition of Degenerate Art in Munich, which featured work by Marc Chagall, James Ensor, Henri Matisse, Pablo Picasso and Vincent van Gosh, sculptures, prints and books. Over 5,000 works were seized, by the Nazis. The exhibit, featured over 650 paintings, sculptures, prints, and books from the collections of thirty two German museums. The show was intended as an official condemnation of modern art. T Exhibitions were mounted in Britain, the USA and other countries in the late 1930's to alert the public to, and counteract what was happening to modern art in Nazi Germany.
