Listen now
Description
In this lecture, Rick Steves describes how art styles follow the march of history: In the 1800s Neoclassical artists celebrate democracy while passionate Romantics champion the individual; the 20th century brings two World Wars, ideological turmoil, and equally wild art; and finally, Rick brings you right up to date with the birth of the European Union and the vibrant world of Europe today.
