Product Description

From February 17 until March 15, 1913, thousands of Americans pushed their way through the doors of the 69th Regiment Armory on the east side of New York City while a battle was waging for or against Modern Art for the first time. What they saw would annoy and infuriate some...and captivate, delight, and inspire many. What resulted from these four weeks of mass exposure to European artists such as Cezanne, Renoir, Van Gogh, and the upstart Marcel Duchamp (with his Nude Descending a Staircase), as well as such Americans as Marsden Hartley, John Marin, and Charles Sheeler, changed how Americans came to understand their own times. By entering through the doors of an armory, they had entered through the doors of the Modern Era. The Great Confusion: The 1913 Armory Show features more than 60 works by American and European painters and sculptors and probes deeply into the history of how the show was organized. It provides fascinating glimpses into the backstage efforts of the American artists Arthur B. Davies, Walter Pach, and Walt Kuhn as they worked tirelessly to bring a new art to a new American audience.

An excellent analysis of an event that changed the art world. --Library Journal

I bought this and I'm going to watch it again. Very well done and nicely narrated. The only thing I didn't like was the fake Teddy Roosevelt -- not needed! Just his comments would have been enough. But this is an excellent film.

I purchased this for my son who is taking an art history class. He is using it to supplement his reading. It is informative and gives a good understanding of the subject.

I loved this documentary. The art and the history of the art (especially during this fascinating period) was amazing. I learned a lot and enjoyed it!
